Why do I get the feeling that the Policestate is now after TOR?
Sara,

This is the 3rd Report from a Security/IT Vendor I have seen in the last month or so which tries to blame TOR for Cyber-crime /Terrorism.

I remember there was one from Akamai also on similar lines.

But the most important thing folks need to be wary of All-pervasive Privacy Invasions conducted by the Government online in the name of ""Keeping us safe" suppposedly.

I was recently sent this very interesting chart from the Independent Newspaper which showed where the Top 10 Supporters for ISIS/ISIL come from(in terms of Tweets).

Guess whos at No.1?

Our Supposed Ally-Saudi Arabia.

Guess who else is in the Top 10?

America , the UK and our closest allies(On whom we spend Billions in Militiary Aid every year)-Egypt and Turkey!!

What's stopping the Police-state from taking action against these people?Nothing.

But still they don't.

Sad But true reality.

This is why TOR will continue to be immensely popular going ahead.
