Even if you use Tor for *all* your traffic your node fingerprint will
generate a trace of your journeys in the descriptor archive if you run a
node on a mobile device (e.g. notebook) - and your tor node fingerprint
becomes high valuable information.

One might ask how can you get the node fingerprint of a certain person?
..what about using the ContactInfo field ;)  (one of may ways..)
