The incident happened yesterday of taking onion v3 off is beyond
horrible, Because the issue happened and (appear to be) fixed without
any single patch downloaded to the user/client Tor.
Someone might come with explanations but on the same time this bug or
attack or whatever can tell alot on the issue whether tor is reliable
alternative (secure) mirror to the clearnet, Well saying onion v3 went
off and on is like saying the whole clearnet on earth went off and on if
we really put them into parallels.
This mean power/control on the tor network is not really on the hands of
the users or contributors, Its above them and worse than the clearnet...
I think maybe TPO should rethink about reimplementing P2P design rather
than the current centralized design. But what is clear is that the
current state not good as it should be.
Note: Im aware of this ticket
