Ok so they will come back with more than just child porn... thats when we have to draw the line!

"Yeah, so we disabled child porn like you asked, but we're not willing to do anything about piracy, death threats to government officials, cybercrime, or that mob ring running all their communications through our system. Yeah yeah, I know, the mob ring is responsible for the death of a dozen officers. Can't do anything. Well, I mean, we could, obviously. But we don't want to. Sorry! Let me know if you find any more child porn sites though!"

That will go over *real* well.

The line is drawn. The line is that Tor does not censor. That's the only line that makes sense, because everything else requires subjective judgement that many would not be able to agree on.

If you don't want your internet connection to be used anonymously, for *anything*, then don't run a Tor exit node. It's impossible to block subjects on a case-by-case basis anyway - the exact thing Tor was built to prove! - and I'd rather not waste our coders' time on that.
