For those who havent been keeping up with Tor, soon after Tor named its first female director, Shari Steele, a key male member, Tors figurehead Jacob Appelbaum, was accused by an employee (over twitter no less) of rape. Soon after other females within the project joined in and he was forced out without any due process or even legal charges.
This prompted a SJW narrative attack on the various tor social outlets to bury objections to the way this way handled. Since then things have gone downhill, no accountability or remorse has been shown by Tor management and the aggressors who levied their baseless complaints continue to work internally on Tor source code, while Jacob has had his career and life ruined (including “rapist” being spray painted across the front of his apartment building right under his window).
Anyone following the news over the last decade has seen this attack before, as demonstrated against whistleblowers, journalists, politicians and even world bank leaders. It remains a government choice method for taking down opposition, destroying reputation, job, family and often freedom all in one baseless accusation. Peoples faith in Tor has been shaken and its highly likely US government operatives are either working within the Tor project or have under their control those who do.
If safenet succeeds in its planned design it will outperform Tor in terms of anonymity but Tor still offers access to the clearnet and safenet doesnt, will it have this feature? Will it be possible for it to given its design?
