I wouldn't go quite that far, but scanning over I can see a few strange
comments in the notes

> No metrics on the amount of pedophilia that actually happens Tor -
probably a lot
In POST's report to the UK Government they mentioned (I presume based on
metrics) that most didn't use Tor because they found it too slow. I'm not
in a position to know for sure, but my suspicion is that it's actually far
more prevalent on the clearnet.

> Google can't scrape the deep web
Google scrapes far more of the deep web than some realise - if you can view
a HS through tor2web there's a reasonable chance that Google has crawled
it. All it takes is a single link (whether to a HS that links to your HS,
or a direct link).

Most of the other points are things that seem to have been rehashed over
and over - can't we protect legitimate users whilst defending against
illegitimate ones? etc.
