Our enemies? That's a self-limiting attitude. Plus, can we take one
employee/executive's comments to be company policy? Plus, would he be the
one making this decision? Plus, what about "hold your friends close, and
your enemies closer"? Plus, he is just one more of the majority view that
the "bad guys" have to be stopped at any cost - and one more reason the Tor
Project needs a professional PR/branding/marketing makeover to tell the good
side of the Tor story.

I don't pretend to believe this would be an easy sell. Only that it
shouldn't be ignored outright when there is so much upside. And maybe this
is not the same old bad Micro$oft that many like to loathe.

Hell, if no one else wants to tackle this then I would be glad to on the
basis of a reasonable expense account and 20% of whatever I convince them to
send to the Tor Project every year in funding.
