    Is anyone still doing this? I feel like it's not much of a difference if I'm the only one

    I'm still using Tor without sharing bandwith, but for downloading "files" I have found that I2P works better.

    Why is DDOSing a US government funded service going to help the world? https://www.torproject.org/about/sponsors.html.en

    Granted I did read the OP at the time and it was a bunch of nonsense, and the stuff espoused then still is.

    Got em lol

    It could have worked but we needed more in the coverage department.

    I hear news networks are good at pushing biased news on an uninformed people. We could still make it happen, we'd just need coverage. Like doing something controversial on purpose just to get on the news. MSNBC would call us evil or something, then we'd be Fox's heroes, then we'd have armchair intellectuals discussing the morality of taking down the anonymous internet while thousands of people start DDOSing Tor.

    Granted I like Tor and if we had the world volunteer to DDOS it for us I would be sad. Plus the more you think about it ISIS would just start using some other kind of communication.

    im sure there is some half decent coders who sympathize with ISIS who could knock together a sophisticated encrypted communications protocol, and any actual important intel is probably relayed via offline or heavily coded means, i doubt they just pop on skype to talk about their super terrorist plans, plus any decent DDOS attacks generally require the use of botnets of thousands of computers, and im sure certain organizations/governments already have huge resources being used to target any private browsing solutions, a few people downloading ubuntu isn't going to be doing much except slowing down the specific nodes your being routed through, and im not too sure about the specifics of tor but i would imagine they already have some sort of traffic management to mitigate any basic DDOS attempts

    Arguably this would not be a basic DDOS attempt -- the ideal such attack is thousands of unique IPs generating traffic that is functionally indistinguishable from real traffic. This would theoretically be that, and with the nature of torrents and modern extensions to the protocol to dodge ISP level DPI and blocks it is not even as though they could go that way.

    Nice talk relevant as of this little aside

    Any confirmation if the OP got kidnapped by ISIS? seems really fucked since his last action on the net was this thread

    Did Isis leave their dirthuts to come to TC? The tragic irony is TC could have used tor to hide his location.

    He'll probably show up five months from now posting in the topic.

    Anyway a DDoS attack would have probably worked pretty well. I think they're typically implemented is spreading a dormant virus to other people's hardware and run the attacks using other people's bandwidth, but even then that would just be a minor inconvenience to anyone using it since the virus would eventually get found and gotten rid of. I don't think you could have convinced the public to voluntarily help you DDoS tor, most people smart enough to know what tor is doesn't want it to go away, anyone ignorant enough would be too afraid they'd get bombed or killed by a hitman.

    Nov 20 2015 he was last seen, does that date mean the last time he logged in, or the last time he posted? If the former then maybe that's a little weird.

    Also ddosing a network created by the CIA is really stupid, It was designed to catch criminals without putting them off if they saw the IP of some office in the CIA lol and if only the CIA used Tor obviously every Tor IP = CIA IP. That's why they opened tor to the public, to make it actually useful. Just because ISIS use it for evil thosen't mean you should forgot what it's orginal purpose was
