EVERYONE including THIS server !

The Tor server is OpenSource, decentralized (as far as i know, should be) and free. So you can run it on your own vhost webserver for as little as 5€ per Month.

„which countries host the largest chunks of the Tor network“

1. Germany: 1,364 (!!! WOHOOO. CALL US PARANOID !!! (beeing spyed on by USA, Russia, China and God knows who else, fearing the 4rth Reich might originate in the DOLLAR-ZONE)
2. United States: 1,328 (nice!)
3. France: 714 (love you guys!)
4. Netherlands: 472 (yeah!)
5. Russia: 270 (wohoo!)
6. United Kingdom: 261 (okay)
7. Sweden: 210 (keep it up bro)
8. Canada: 209 (super-nice)
9. Switzerland: 148 (ok)
10. Romania: 117 (yeeha)

11. Japan 106 (he we go 🙂

„Tor’s footprint: Five years ago less than 2,000 nodes, compared with 6,425 today.“

And we have every reason to become paranoid:

No one could imagine that mass surveillance was done by „western“ „democracies“ – why would a democracy disrespect the rights of it’s citizens?

Well maybe to build up a totalitarian regime 2.0. Thanks to Snowden one not only has the feeling but also the evidence that BigBrother is watching and Orwell 1984 just around the corner.

one has also to understand – the billions of Dollars the NSA has – comes from the taxpayer – from the money-system.

If you are using the monetary system and paying your taxes – you basically help them build the surveillance state… basically tricking yourself.

Was TOR hacked? no does not seem like it

Is TOR Anti-NSA effective?

„Snowden’s leaked NSA documents showed that the agency was having trouble identifying Tor users. With thousands of more turns now in the network’s global maze, tracking Tor users online is likely harder than ever.“

How does TOR work?

Basically tor tunnels your traffic through a pool of randomly chosen servers…  it passes through 4-5 servers run by volunteers (COSTS MONEY!) that „anonymize“ your traffic.

You should be grateful – after all – you surely trust your government or Günther Öttinger that he is not using your data against you.

Always trust your government… they are in bed with big companies with mafia-like structures… but that is okay. (not)

Configuring a Tor relay


The Tor network relies on volunteers to donate bandwidth. The more people who run relays, the faster the Tor network will be. If you have at least 2 megabits/s for both upload and download, please help out Tor by configuring your Tor to be a relay too.

Who does the TOR Bundle?

The Tor Project, Inc is a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) research-education nonprofit organization founded by computer scientists Roger Dingledine, Nick Mathewson and five others. The Tor Project is primarily responsible for maintaining software for the Tor anonymity network.[4]

good job…

Can You use TOR with Facebook?

… yes you CAN BUT FACEBOOK IS BULLYING YOU!

You will have to identify like 100 Friends by their face… and enter 8212 Captchas „is it really you? You have not been logging in from Banlagedsh EVER“.

„Until the launch of the Facebook Tor address, users had experienced problems viewing Facebook through the service.

Access requests were often mistakenly flagged as hacking attacks, because

Tor presents a user as being from multiple, shifting locations

With a dedicated URL, Tor users are now able to more easily access the social network – and with an extra degree of privacy.

Facebook has been inaccessible in China since 2009

Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, all of which are blacklisted by the ruling Communist party.“

There is a official Chinese Facebook called: http://renren.com/.

The Chinese Version of Whatsapp is: https://weibo.com

Some are also using: http://www.wechat.com/
