	I wasn't aware that i2p is mainly used for torrents? 

	Last time I checked their eepsites(or whatever they are called) I didn't find anythign interesting or 'criminal'. In other words, nobody seems to be using i2p to host anything of value. And I saw more than a few sites that looked that like russian honeypots.

	But hey! You can use 'free' software, courtesy of the US navy to 

	'Protect your privacy and Defend yourself against network surveillance and traffic analysis."  !!! 

	Trust me, scum like shawn quinn and all the rest of the tor gang would never lie to you.
