    Now you can securely transmit your information to us so we can insecurely store and share it with anyone who asks. Also, don't worry, we PROMISE we won't flag your account as a known TOR User and tell anyone about that either. You can trust us! /s

    I guarantee you, the moment this goes live, some FB enthusiast drops the status, "I'm anonymous! Posting update through Tor, woo!" in her feed only to receive 26 likes from her friends who all honestly think she's joking.
