	Yes. You don't trust me? You are not implying you believe in
	your own 'conspiracy theories' eh? =)

	But here's the thing. It's trivial for Roger and friends to
	look me up in any of their .mil databases. So they know or
	can easily know. 

	You as a 'fan' of some project of the US state may not have that
	kind of info but rest assured other people do.

	Fine. And? What conclusion do you draw from my answer?

	To clarify, just in case. My analysis isn't "just
	words". It's a sound analysis. 

	The tor project is hardly to be trusted and people saying
	"trust us, we're the good guys" are pretty much mocking the
	audience. *Their* assertions are "just words".

	Did I ever state "there are backdoors"? No I didn't. You
	are asking for evidence to back up something I never said.

	On the other hand, what would a backdoor in tor or similar
	software look like? I'm guessing there are no 'backdoors' in
	tor, only 'bugs'. I think it's called "plausible deniability"
	or something like that...

	Why on earth should I do other people's work? Help the
