We're unhappy to hear that Tor is sometimes used for bad purposes. Cars and phones are also used to buy weapons or drugs or to hire a hitman, but that doesn't mean that cars and phones are bad. Same with Tor. Tor was developed to be a force for good, and that's what most people use it for, including journalists, human-rights advocates, lawyers, researchers, and marginalized and at-risk groups. It's easy to pick out the bad actors and turn them into a story, but it's the silent majority of others working for good which are actually inspiring.
