We wanted to make the Tor Abuse FAQ entries more clear wrt our position on backdoors in Tor, tracing users, and the uses of Tor. The abuse FAQ page also lost its ToC, and we should mention the abuse templates and exit node blog post there, too.

Should we reopen this or start a new ticket? The abuse FAQ is really old and contains some statements that are increasingly questionable.


  • "So yes, criminals could in theory use Tor"
    • I think there's a more direct and honest way to phase this
  • "The network has been running since October 2003, and it's only generated a handful of complaints."
    • It's probably generated tens of thousands of complaints at this point, no?
  • The section about services blocking Tor is very out of date (only mentions Wikipedia and SORBS). It should probably just be a stub that redirects to the new page for that initiative.

We tend to treat tickets as discrete units of work, not as topic items. In this case, I see very little similarity between your comments and the original description.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
