I see that you were quite quiet whilst ad hominem attacks were being made against me. But I will put that to one side for the moment.
As you mentioned, there are legitimate worries, mainly that Tor and people like yourself have a conflict of interest. The main funding appears to come from the US military. It appears to many of us, that the software has been deliberately kept weak to traffic analysis to support US intelligence operations. In fact, it seems to 'fit like a glove'. Further, that the issue of traffic analysis has been discussed in convoluted terms as a means of keeping that way. Hiding from traffic analysis is not rocket science, nor does it require endless reams of papers and speeches on packet obfuscation.
Given that you are the head guy, I want to know what is going on? If your reply consists of the stock answer, "well this is complex", keep in mind that I am a security specialist too and know that to be untrue.
I don't mean to be confrontational in any way, but the credibility of this project is on the line here.
