To Zenaan :
I havn't enough grasp on english language (i have a hell of time to debunk
sarcastics comment in my own language, let alone english) to determine if
you are backing me or are pushing me into the cliff.
Anyway, I back you on your description of the situation. A few 'genuine
members' (everyone in here is tor dev ?) are slowing down tor development,
by making the possibility of a move out of sight.
Friend ! \o/
Isn't out there tor forks with enough peers ?
