I am a Gentoo Developer (I'm no demigod S.K. :) ) I maintain the tor
ebuilds. I am a forum moderator (altough in the past months i have not
used the forums much) And i followed this thread and the one in the
moderators forum with interest. I can now assure the Tor users that work
is being done to allow tor users read-only access to the forums (the
GET/POST idea would make the use of search impossible).
