    I should applaud this I suppose. Frankly, still getting my head wrapped around the idea of TOR on my real name workspace. I can see value in a perp not knowing the location of a "young lady" posting her life's activities. If for no other reason I applaud the move because it shows TOR is not only for criminals. I haven't done anything online that is illegal, and I live on TOR.

    Really, how do you know this for sure in all jurisdictions, given the breadth of legislation such as hate speech and whatever any internet user happens to be offended or triggered by what you say! Which is a good reason FOR using Tor actually - it provides some protection from the crazy.
