	As I already mentioned,  you and others talk as if that were the
	case. As a matter of fact you are doing it again in this 
	(previous) message of yours.

	That is just a generality, a half truth, and not relevant in
	this context.  It is an excuse and a distraction.

	I dont need traffic analysis, I am not a government nazi. 

	However,  government nazis do need traffic analysis to
	deal with people who correctly configure their servers.

	It shouldnt be necessary for me to point out such obvious

	Also, if attacks against  servers are ´easy´,
	why did it take years for the government  to get freedom

	Citation needed? What kind of citation? I make my case based on
	basic, correct reasoning and public information. And you have
	nothing to counter it. 

	And what are *you* doing? Are you indeed parroting the
	official story? Are you that ´naive´? 

	> all signs point to insider threat (you know, rats)

	So, wheres **your** evidence for that parallel story?

	What? You dont want to discuss how fuckingly corrupt the US
	government is in a list that belongs to the US government? 

	You dont want to discuss the fact that the american ´justice´
	system is based on blatant lies and that they even have a
	procedure in place to manage those blatant lies?

	tsk tsk tsk 
	And, au contraire, the discussion is 100% a propos this mailing

	See, you are basing your baseless defence of Tor (US
	military project)  on lies from the US government, lies which in
	turn can be traced to so called ¨parallel contstruction¨.

	Baseless assertion.

	False, baseless assertion. Notice again  how you fail to
	specify the ´threat model´, to use your military jargon.

	You are not explicitly saying that tor resists traffic
	analysis, but you are saying something that amounts to the same
	thing - that traffic analysis doesnt matter.
