Comment(by cypherpunks):

 Replying to [comment:8 cypherpunks]:
 > As a Belgian, any circuit that begins or ends in Germany is too close
 for me. It's all within the larger European law enforcement zone.  Perhaps
 !EnforceDistinctContinents is a better idea.  Or !EnforceDistinctSubnets
 can be configurable for /4, /8 or user defined ranges.
 > What nickm said is that IX points are the threat. Why is there not more
 research done on this level?  Is it not core to Tor's anonymity?

 Perhaps "why hasn't tor implemented anything related to this research?" is
 a better question. It seems IX points are the problem.  The AS paper
 doesn't seem to matter much.
