Without such, the above report is unfortunately unqualified anti-tor FUD.

people use adblockers against you?
And shareholders... based on a model that people hate and whose
minds do pretty well at ignoring even without blockers? Lol, remind
me to 'invest' elsewhere in things people like. Or at least start accepting
cash donations/payments in the mail, or Bitcoin. Oh, but that might
cost you to do work to open mail. Oy vey.
