Running a Tor node is an all or nothing proposition - either you accept
fully the ramifications of a personal identifier (no matter how flawed it
is) being tied to this subversive activity FOR ALL TIME, or you don't.
If you don't, you have options - prepaid visa cards, coffee shop wifi,
throwaway yahoo accounts, etc. You can get that Tor node up and running
in a completely untraceable manner without much fuss.
OTOH, if you _do_ accept it, then by all means, run Tor from your home
But the middle ground is off limits - you do not run Tor from a personally
attached Internet connection and then:
a) complain about the ToS that YOU signed off on (a common thread here)
b) come up with lame workarounds in a misguided attempt to somehow
otpimize this situation.
