Submission + - Austrian Man Raided For Running Tor Node Exit-> 5 5

An anonymous reader writes: From William, the man affected: "Yes, it happened to me now as well — Yesterday i got raided for someone sharing child pornography over one of my Tor exits.

I'm good so far, not in jail, but all my computers and hardware have been confiscated.

If convicted i could face up to 6 years in jail, of course i do not want that and i also want to try to set a legal base for running Tor exit nodes in Austria or even the EU.

Gold, really? eGold was a site that did paypal for gold, and failed miserably. Gold-to-cash is a constantly changing ratio, and can lead to gold holders to be quite poorer when the stock market is soaring... cash is better than gold most of the time.

eGold failed because they were engaged in fraud and straight up money laundering

The reason the federal student loan program exists is because it ISN'T profitable to make that loan. Most kids are going to default, and the banks will be left holding the bag.

you can default on student loans, but you can never be absolved of them.

The only risk in making a student loan is that the beneficiary dies before they can pay it back, which is generally speaking a sound bet.

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
