Re: Website with explanation for tor service?

Great text! For a start I have a little enhancement:
You are probably visiting this web site because you saw this host name
in your log files. This server is part of a volunteer-supported
distributed network of servers running a program called Tor. Tor is used
to anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH,
and other applications using the TCP protocol. Tor aims to provide
internet users with protection against "traffic analysis," a form of
network surveillance that threatens personal anonymity and privacy,
confidential business activities and relationships, freedom of speech
and state security.
If you are investigating abuse that you believe passed through this IP
address, you should know that it probably did not originate from this
server and the operator of this server has no effective means of tracing
the origins of the encrypted traffic that has passed through this server.
Tor server operators regret that some users may behave abusively, but we
also feel that providing a resource that improves anonymity and privacy
is important. See the Abuse FAQ at http://tor.eff.org/faq-abuse.html
for more information.
You can learn more about Tor at its website: http://tor.eff.org
I added freedom of speech to the things tor protects and removed the
mentionend .en from the URL.
