  • So punish everyone that's using Tor. Great.

    Also, some person used a knife to commit a crime. Obviously there will be a ban on all knives.
    Also, some person ran over someone with a car. Obviously there will be a ban on all cars.
    Also, some person drowned another person. Obviously there will be a ban on water.
