The Beauty of Anonymity That is TOR
As an anarchist and leader of a questionable and controversial group, I have long been in love with TOR and the wonders of Onion land.

I can see here that many here covet their privacy and thought I would share this joy for those who don't know.

What is TOR? Well they say it best so so here is a copy past from their site.

"Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security known as traffic analysis"

The tor project likely best known to hackers and anarchists as a tool to protect them from legal repercussions, and to druggies as a gateway to onion land and the silk road, is very helpful to those who simply value their privacy as well and don't want to be a statistic or have anyone gathering information on their online doings.

I am sure a lot here already know about TOR but for those who don't it is a one way ticket to onion land where the currency of choice is bitcoin and people get pissy if you get to persona...Onion land better known as "the deep web" is home to many groups who want to avoid the everyday traffic or the surface web...if you have a group and don't want randoms coming around snooping this is the place you call home.

But aside from being a gate way to the motherland it also provides you with a sense of security and privacy for normal web browsing by not only blocking you IP by all traceable information...Used by the CIA as well as the military and other private organizations, I feel safe with the knowledge that when I use TOR my right to privacy is protected.

If you would like to know more simply google The TOR project and feel free to post here for help with setting and features.

Just thought I would post for those that may be interested and not know of this helpful tool to protect your rights.

I don't think onion is as anonymous as you believe anymore.

Re: The Beauty of Anonymity That is TOR
most of the public traffic that come after reading forum posts and the odd article online stop at the mirror or "the hidden wiki" and are content with what they find there. if you have your own .onion address outside traffic is still 0 as far as I have encountered.

if you have a .onion address you would want to take step to ensure your address did not fall in to wrong hands and i personally normally wait for a potential member to have a .onion email address on my server before giving the address of our main site.

Now if someone is after you there is no protection as there is always a way, but with the right steps and the use of TOR I doubt that would even be an issue for the normal TOR user. most breaches of privacy come from human error and stupidity and although nothing is 100% but i still trust TOR to protect my normal everyday online privacy.

Unless those gateways are being operated.

Re: The Beauty of Anonymity That is TOR
AC please explain what you mean by "operated" so I can respond to those concerns properly.

if you mean that they are being watched and documented you are correct, it would be stupid on their part not to. I say stay out of onion land unless you know what you are doing...I am simply promoting TOR as an everyday privacy protector...those who get more involved with TOR then simply using it to browse ebay anonymously can either post here or find their own ways of ensuring their privacy in onionland.

If anyone every goes there and hire a hitman or tries any other illegal activity they have what ever they get coming as obviously the main gateway is watched and controlled.

controlling your own server in onionland gives you more protection but there are still step you would want to take to increase your security...but still it's better then nothing and no other offers anything even remotely as close to privacy as TOR aside from creating your own network that would raise flags right away.
