Who determines what qualifies as "subverting or infringing the
freedoms of end-users"?

And this is, I gather, derived from the idea of "you may not start up
a competing service using a modified version of this software".  I
will remain deliberately silent on the question of whether this is
justified, but nonetheless, that clause is non-free in the extreme.

So no, if the above clauses are part of the license in the context in
which they were indicated in the previous message, then Torpark is not
free software.
