As for Tor, I am not running my nodes "for the Tor project", I'm running them
for the end users who need a free and open Internet. So while I'd share your
belief that Tor project should stay out of this, or better yet, support RMS,
shutting down nodes seems like taking out your punishment on the innocent ones.

With respect,
