Well see...from my point of view SSH is abuse of the tor-network, namely aiding in hacking other systems. (see my other posts for my logic) To use SSH you need an account thats under normal circumstances is known on the other side, thus eliminating the need to anonymize your connection. So yea i will advice all that read this to reject that port whole heartly...

IMHO, the intentions of the tor-network are to provide anonymity for data connections where the other side does not _need_ to know who the originator is. If i'm wrong there i'm sure it will be told so by many instead of one...

Tor is _not_ just about hiding who you are to a service provider, but also about hiding where you go from a local observer (your ISP, other people on the same network, etc). Also, access of blocked services certainly is a big aspect here. Same goes for hidden services - I might be the only person who knows the address of my hidden service, and it's still a valid use case.

Please don't try to provoke a big stream of "I think you're wrong, too" emails. Go read the website first.
