     Read it again.  His complaint, basically, was that TorButton had removed
his option to choose the functioning of various aspects of his browser usage.

     Last time I checked (a few hours ago now), TorButton was being distributed
as part of a bundle including tor and privoxy, as well, for the Defective OS.
Seems to me that discussion of bugs/misfeatures/whatever about software that
is distributed with tor from the tor web site is very much on topic for a tor
email discussion list.
