Yesterday news broke that the use of Tor helped to incriminate someone for being a jackass. Tor since October has been revealed to be an abysmal tool for running a drug enterprise and now seems to be unfit for the humble task of generally being a nuisance. Of course write ups on the story mention how just having a few things done differently could have helped to prevent this arrest. Maybe that is true and much of Tor isn't just a giant honeypot. The moral here is that no single tool, especially when used without an understanding of that tool's limitations, is going to be able to serve as a magic bullet.
