	What I see is a guy who 'earned' something like 100K per year
	(WTF!!!) - money paid by the pentagon, while pretending to be a
	'lefty' 'anarchist'.

	AND, he got 100K per year from the pentagon to promote the
	pentagon's fake anonimity network.

	In my book that is pretty bad. And I don't think he's done any
	pretty good things to at least offset all that bad, let alone
	ending up with a positive balance. 

	Perhaps he wasn't as bad as other members of the tor 'project'
	but that's not exactly a high standard. Not to mention he *was*
	a full member of the tor establishment until a month ago.
