Comment(by DasFox):

 mikeperry I'm not sure what you're trying to say.

 You think by passing the HTTP/HTTPS proxy and gettign online without it
 not a problem?

 Or you don't believe this could a threat to someone? If you don't think
 this could ever pose a security problem, try telling that to the people in
 China who use Tor to do things their country considers illegal online and
 need this security and protection, otherwise they'd find themselves in
 jail. I consider that a real problem...
