Nice one, Matt.

Yes, with SSL, Tor, and VPN in existence it would make internet
censorship difficult, but if Snowden is to be believed, GCHQ already
has this capacity and could disseminate it to the police forces of this
nation, so some sort of comment is necessary.

No, Tor should not be advocating porn (but I've never seen Tor
advocating it), and advocating could lead to grave implications of
legality which could leave Tor being closed down.

Probably the best thing to do now is to refer concerned citizens to ORG
and for Tor supporting it to the hilt.  There's a big brawl
