Re: [tor-talk] Explain yourself Conrad Rockenhaus

I dont care about anyone background , bring the technical stuff and let
us discuss them here. but no body should care about anyone background
because it doesnt matter he/she from military or was one ... or working
in any similar fucked up organizations or any similar examples.

From technical point view im not a fan of BSD world , but BSD better
than windows, mac (not better than GNU)

GreyPony from back in 2013 it was not bad to have it specially after
snowden. (i didnt use the service, but some said it was a good one)

anyway its offline now afaik.
