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.

Stack Exchange proposals and pages are very much community driven. We
need help from the community to make our page a success. There is a
discussion on our proposal page about whether we should limit the page
to Tor-related questions or not;

I agree with Nick's statement about seeing how things develop and
revisit the question later. I am concerned that including other
anonymizing networks and tools, such as Freenet and I2P, will make the
site too broad. I would also like to encourage you to comment on the
proposal page instead of the tor-talk mailing list. The proposal page
is a good place for a discussion about what the page should and should
not be.
