Re: [tor-talk] On the Theory of Remailers

Hi all,

I'm reading your conversation, and i'm not understanding very well what you
mean by high/low latency network. Isn't it just a ping duration delta ?
You speak about low and high latency like it's a feature.

Is tor mixing only low latency with low latency in its circuits ? Opening
for a dispatching of services (ie. mail on high latency, web on low ) ?

What's the point ?
