I myself find 4chan to be one of the few communities where people are not afraid of their tastes and fetishes; it's refreshing to visit something where people have opinions other than the society-sanctioned politically correct ones.

Sure, there is racism, probably some hate speech too, unusual graphic content, and plenty of offensive things, some of which might be illegal. But it's all ephemeral as boards quickly move around to new topics.

I'm a software engineer with significant systems programming experience and I don't really know how Tor works either.
I know enough to know that it's technology based on a specific technique (onion routing), but I never studied this technique enough to really understand how to implement it.

Yesterday, in France, more than 3 millions people gathered in Paris, and in smaller cities hundreds of thousands of people gathered as well.
This is something that hasn't happened since the liberation in 1945.

Everyone is gathering to proclaim freedom of speech.
And what's the answer of the government? We're going to restrict freedom of speech...
