    Tor is set to launch public beta for new anonymous instant messaging service next month. The need to be anonymous ? So you make phony messages?

    Anything that prevents the NSA and GCHQ trying to access every little thing about our lives under the guise of preventing terrorism is to be welcomed. Control is the aim, not protection!!

    The US Navy helped develop Tor, don't assume just cause the NSA has said that Tor is very anonymous and secure that it can't find a way in.

    It is probable that the new supercomputer that the NSA is assembling will be able to crack ANY clever encryption or anonymising system we can come up with. That doesn't mean we shouldn't try to up our game and get back at least SOME of our freedom of speech, privacy, etc. Let's not make it easy for Big Brother to take over the world.

    Don't you mean "a run for OUR money"? :)

    Hurray to TOR, hurray to anything that fights the NWO. Giving up all your freedom for a little security is NEVER a good deal. Remember, folks, we have a guy in the White House who has said to us without ANY ambiguity, "I will ignore the Constitution in order to control your lives; I WILL violate your civil and human rights to maintain power and support my globalist masters.". Welcome to Amerika, comrade.
