The real solution is to improve hidden services so they can be an
to insecure internet services. Exit nodes are like off-ramps, and
having one next to their house. But relay-only nodes are like
encryption essentially lets relay operators build them without ever
of the creeps cruise around in their neighborhood.
Of course one could still rail against the possibility that the
might still be "bad data", but at least for me that's a much weaker
For example, I don't know anyone who refuses to use the tools granted to
them in the justice system because they are so often used to defend
drug dealers, murders, and thieves. I also don't know anyone who
doesn't believe in maintaining city, state, and interstate
when just the act of driving carries a rather large risk of death when
compared to other forms of transportation.
