Comment So serve from less domains (Score 1) 628

According to Ublock Origin.

25 or 30% requests were blocked.
Only showing 7 out of 23 domains!

Here's my deal.. Serve all the ads/tracking from at most 3 domains and I'll reconsider whitelisting.. Oh, and default to https which makes browsers behave a bit more securely with what to give to third party domains.

Comment They had a warrant... (Score 5, Informative) 138

The issue was did this one warrant let the government hack into everyone who tried to use Tor to connect this hidden site. Tor prevented the FBI from determining their IP address without further attacks on individual computers. The other issue is if the Judge knew they were authorizing this many computers to possibly be hacked.

I believe they waited until the user tried to login, create an account, or something like that, so just accidentally browsing to the site shouldn't have triggered the attack.

From the facts I have from this article, I think the FBI did the right thing.

Maybe if we design our system so it's not so hard to apologize when a doctor makes a mistake that would help...
