[tor-talk] Tor's reputation problem with pedo, some easy steps the community could take

Tor has a rather severe reputation problem at the moment.  Given the recent
revelations around malware on the network, and the pervasiveness of
pedophilia, I think we should consider a course of action to help boost the
network's PR.

For one - while nobody is interested in acting as the police and stamping
out the pedo material, cleaning up links to pedo sites on the hidden wiki
and the various other link dirs would be a good start.

As a newcomer to Tor, as I explored the various onions out there, I felt as
if practically everywhere I turned there were links taking me to pedo
sites, IRC channels etc.

I recognize that free speech means free speech for everyone, even those
with views that we find objectionable, but there's nothing to stop the
community from turning a cold shoulder to these people who see informed
consent as being an optional or academic concept.

Just my $.02
