"...within the bounds of ethics..." can mean a lot of different things.

Maybe  this person didn't like the way ioerror was SLANDERED. Maybe a
rift in the Board about how much say the gubmint gets in the project and
it just got replaced with a majority sold out to teh gubmint.

I might add IF there was some new MAJOR problem within tor software
itself ioerror or this guy would surely be blowing that whistle... Now
that there's been a purge, that could change. People like schneier might
be reasonable and ethical watchdogs but he CERTAINLY isn't someone who
can spot the problems in the code.
