I've already said "other than the legal issues that were already raised".
Jon's exact claim was that "Sniffing the traffic at the exit node actually
jeopardize the reason people are using this software in the first place."
and that's what I was arguing against. I'm not a lawyer so I have no legal
opinion on such matters. Since he didn't seem to be talking about the legal
aspects of sniffing exit traffic, I figured my opinion was as good as his. I
just don't like reading things like "sniffing exit traffic jeopardizes the
reason people use Tor". I'm just trying to be constructive. Though, if it's
illegal to do anyways then it's a moot point.
