Re: [tor-talk] Repercussion from turning every Tor user into a hidden service?
I guess the question I have for you is "What's the benefit of turning
every Tor client into a hidden service?".

To quote the hidden service FAQ
<https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-hidden-service>, " If your computer
isn't online all the time, your hidden service won't be either. This
leaks information to an observant adversary.", so yes.
Does it add risks and/or advantages, if someone adds a hidden service, which he is not going to use?
I guess this doesn't even cover the ethical (?) question of whether it's
ethical to turn client machines into hidden services by default, without
asking the user.
