Re: [tor-talk] Are non-official projects welcome to Stackexchange Tor Q&A forum?

I disagree with the Tor Project pushing for a StackExchange that is limited to Tor, when a StackExchange for Anonymity Technology doesn't exist as a whole. I would prefer that a SE for Anonymity software is established that includes Tor as well as other solutions such as I2P. As it stands right now, Tor looks like it's trying to monopolize any possible Anonymity SE, and that's not okay.

There is a thread here that echoes similar concerns:
