lol - so you think you are 'feeding the pidgeons'? And what
kind of animal are *you*? Maybe a slug?

"Protect your privacy. Defend yourself against network
surveillance and traffic analysis."
Using tor? LOL. What's the latest feature? "don't maximize the
browser window if you don't want to be tracked".
"Tor prevents people from learning your location or browsing
habits." <---- another lie.
Of course, since tor is promoted by scammers, they use scamming
language. Prevent 'people' from learning your location? What
people, exactly? Your retarded aunt? Somebody selling hotdogs
on the corner? Or the totalitarian government that FUNDS
So here's the meat :
tor is a project funded by the US military. And of course, it
doesn't protect joe sixpack from the US military and
tor works to advance the interests of the US military by
allowing THEM to 'browse the web' anonymously using tor users
as cover. Tor would be useless for the pentangon nazis if they
were the only people using the network. So they need human
cattle to use as cover.
tor works because the US military can monitor a substantial
part of the internet and so 'deanonymize' tor users, whereas the
'enemies' of the US government can't do that. Not to mention
the amount of 'fast' tor nodes isnt' exactly big.
the US military has no problem with providing the 'masses' with
a fake anonimity network that only works against modest
'adversaries'. Rather, there are good reasons for the US
military to provide such a fake 'service' including propaganda
(US cunts pretending to defend 'humand rights'), the
ability to gather 'interesting' people in one place, etc.

'donate' their time in exchange from millions of
stolen dollars from the pentagon.
Anyway, if you want to know what tor really is, do your own
homework. I've been kind enough to point you in the right
direction. Assuming you are not yet another tor-bot, which more
than likely you are.
