Comment (by cypherpunks):

 >No, we don't disable it by default.

 gk, is it really you saying that? Have security agencies forced you to say

 Why the hell do you have it enabled? It is clear it is not needed for
 almost anything except playing games, rendering 3d models and exploiting
 the browser. The first two uses are not for TB. There is no reason to keep
 that except of being said "you must obey decision of <state-owned
 malicious agent> and insert a backdoor, otherwise you will be prosecuted".
