Islamophobia will not be tolerated on this list.  Full.  Stop.

This is a list for Tor development.  I don't see any code in your rambling,
asinine, bigoted, word-salad post, nor do I see any discussion of current bugs,
potential features, community outreach, contributor resources, or anything
else which could reasonably be construed as development.

As for "whatever racists do nowadays": white supremacists in the United
States recently murdered an anti-racist protester named Heather Heyer.  Your
comments are not only extremely off-topic, but given the current political
context, extremely Bad Takes.

Please keep your future posts to this list on-topic and productive.

I'd say "Best" but you could only be better,
