The Overnet idea seems a tad silly. If connections in between servers
need to be logged, I do not think the requirement of logging would
change were the connections to be for the Overnet or for the Internet.
And I honestly do not see a problem with engaging in illegal
activities to ensure the anonymity of Tor users. What the government
is doing is illegal by any decent rational standards, and it will
[hopefully] never come to the level of abuse against us that Ghandi
and other active peaceful resistors were subjected to in order to
achieve their ends, so it is unlikely that standing on the sidelines
and shouting that more people need to join Tor will accomplish much.
