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?".

Does it add risks and/or advantages, if someone adds a hidden service, which he is not going to use?
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.

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.
