    When you read the documentation and the tor project's web pages, did you
bother to think about what you read *at all*?  There is *no such thing* as a
"public" bridge.  Period.  Why do you think the bridge addresses and key
fingerprints are only given out three to a customer instead of the entire
list being on display?  That is the whole point of the bridge system:  unlike
the usual tor routers that are listed in the publicly available directory, the
bridge routers are *unlisted*.  If they were listed, they would be the same
as the usual routers.  Why do you think they are unlisted?  It's so that there
is no downloadable list for censoring states to block.
    It's frightening that tor is, in the words of the immortal Boris Badenov,
foolproof, but *not* idiotproof.

    Whatever.  Maybe someday you'll understand what anonymity is about, but
you haven't yet shown any sign of it.
