On the contrary, it was my impression that we are here working on,
contributing to, and using Tor because we believe that internet access
is a human right. This includes end-to-end connectivity. Pricing a real
internet connection (what is being referred to as a "business account"
or the like) out of reach of common folk is equivalent to the overt
denial of this human right.

Am I misinformed here?
