Hello list,

I just visited BridgeDB and got a bridge from "Team Cymru", according to
the whois of the IP - should the Tor Project really allow a company
trying to "track and take down threat actors and criminals around the
globe" host a substantial portion of the network, according to their
info page:


The following was also very concerning:

"Team Cymru is comprised of former…"
- ...
- Law enforcement
- ISP backbone engineers
- ...

I suspect that they log connections to their relays and bridges, and
maybe even more.

Such companies profit from gathering and selling information's,
exploits and the likes.

bad-relays rejected this message, which is concerning.. I hope someone
here could redirect it to the right people, or do the Tor Project
higher-ups know the people behind Team Cymru and vouch for them?
