Ah, grarpamp, the sweet smell of vindication :)

"But oh" say the Tor shills "you'll crash the network" it's just so
sad since "you know, there's no way to properly give back to the
network since the network is [WE WANT IT TO BE] so centralised it'll
increase our processing load to decloak those nasty, nasty Wikileaks
perps we keep chasing".

And besides, as we all know, Tor is the only partial anonymity
network in existing, "so we all gotta protect it reall good like,
make sure we don't degrade any of the high speed central nodes the
CIA/NSA runs, and my god, especially the directory nodes now that
that bloody trouble maker Applebaum is gone - finally we don't have
someone who actually believes the free in 'freedom of speech' to mess
up our little play pen".
