  The answer to your second question is no, because private bridges are
used in a setting where heavy censorship exists (eg, China), very few
people want to expose their private bridge networks to outsiders like
yourself. People frequently roll a set of bridges *for their own use*.

  Of course, if you truly have a problem with the Tor network, you're not
obligated to use it. =P  Other options still exist for a reason.
