For clarity, I'm not a member of the Tor project.  I am independent,
freelance, and I am very good at what I do.

And I do own my words, but for the sake of this posting I'll try to be
"polite". In future you might want to block me, just in case.

To reiterate my position, in case you missed it:

Thesis: we should not treat users as stupid.

So, that means you are happy to implicitly denigrate the intelligence of
people who run onion sites, yet not happy to have that perspective itself
called prejudicial, stupid and daft?

As I say above: I feel we should work from the assumption that people are
smart until proven otherwise, and that includes those who set up onion

If it proves to be a problem, later, then fix it, later.
