Thank you for this advice.
My questions are:
1. An individual is using Tor, NoScript, HTTPS-Everywhere, Better Privacy, and has no Java, with Flash disabled, and then securely deletes his places.sqlite, cookies.sqlite, etc, files after each session finishes. Forgive the stupid question but in this case why would TorButton actually be required (for any website)?
2. This is also probably a dumb question. In the https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/3580 ioerror wrote:
"Perhaps it would be useful to email the Hotmail security team and let them know that this isn't going to work very well for people who need security and privacy through anonymity?"
Is this something that would ever be done or considered worthwhile? Do owners / operators of websites like Hotmail for example care what you have to say or do you just assume they will ignore you so do not bother to contact them?
