I'm talking about this, and repeat:

 1) bad connection to some node, because "goodguys" to block it, or owned it.
 2) captcha/blacklist, because "goodguys" generated lot of bad traffic
 3) forged DNS by "goodguys", using dnscrypt is not simple
 4) turn traffic to hostile territory, where is "goodguys" could control it.
