I don't find this particular BBC article relevant to Tor Weekly News.
It's just one more drop on the âBBC hates Torâ series.

It would be nice to have a section in TWN for notable public statements
by Tor Project folk. Andrew Lewman's comment about suspected bug leaks
from NSA and GCHQ staff was rather notable, no? But then, someone would
need to be responsible for that. And we can all read the news.

It's a really interesting statement, but BBC took it and wrote the story they were going to write anyway. Problematic.

Really, the statement Andrew made just emphasizes the fact that all sorts of individuals use anonymity to do positive things. People use Tor to make anonymous tips all over the world, and it just so happens that Tor might be on the receiving end occasionally. =)

Also, all of my non-list email is filtered to send mail containing "dark web" into an easily-ignored bucket. Because most of the time those are looking at hidden services from a unrealistically-negative angle. =P
