Anyone here use Tor?
I've been using it to browse general stuff and it's been pretty nice.  For shadier stuff I can't say yet as I have yet to partake in any of it.  I do love the fact that Tor is free as in freedom.
What are your thoughts on Tor and privacy, lewd?

Have a good day!

I don't use Tor. It's slow, and I don't trust the exit nodes - i2p looks more promising in my opinion. I do use a VPN though.

I don't use Tor.

I'm thinking about hyperbolia though. So far I only connected two computers.

No I don't considering the browser I already use has what I need.

Yuu

Like at most places, I lurk and read. Yes I use tor, but I don't really transmit/download any information without a vpn though. There's some intersting stuff on there from time to time. But I think I2P is a better option for hidden service hosting and such considering it was designed with hidden services in mind (Downside no real anonymous out proxies though, only a few volunteer ran ones. But that means less anonymity).

I'm don't use it, but it seems like it could be useful to some, sure.

I use tor and i2p often. There are some forums in the deepweb that I partake in advanced discussions with, hence me developing the script I mentioned in my intro.

It's definitely useful, but only if you use it correctly. And it isn't really meant for things that require speed (downloads, videos etc.)

I use I2P and Tor pretty frequently. Tor especially because my university blocks loads of things and tracks users like the NSA. It takes a bit of effort to remember not to mix pseudonymous and anonymous activity, but it's very much worth it. I also run IPFS nodes and a node on hyperboria.

Does anyone know what happened to fbichan? Was a pretty nice place, seems to be dead now.

Yeahh I think that it's dead, funny thing is a couple of other places died last year which were pretty active, could be another fbi raid on Tor.

Privacy is okay, as long as you don't overdo it to the fact that you're basically making yourself a target (did I think of that right? idk)
As for Tor, it's alright. I don't really use it often, but it's pretty cool. If I ever have a need for it, it'll be right there for me.
