    It’s probably also media’s fault for this. They only publish when a bad person does a bad thing on the internet with it, not all the millions of users who don’t do bad things. That would be boring.

    It’s funded by the us govt, darpa and American universities. But people won’t look at it just as they do with privacy policies.

        to avoid misunderstanding, I am just stating the ridiculousness of relating Tor to the criminal networks, not some kind of a conspiracy like funded by US organisations. Of course, Tor is almost the only way to anonymity.
