If it gets mismanaged by an individual, you'll get dozens of non-profits as well as corporations that are welcome to fork it and try to convince people to use their own forks

In the end, the best managed fork will win; regardless of how it's taxed.
It's a nightmare to maintain
I'd have thought that was a solved problem long ago - and if it really is still painful, there are plenty of email hosting services that would love to sign up a major ISP to provide that service for you.
No surprises here.
It'd make perfect sense if NSA submits bug reports to Tor for vulnerabilities it knows its competitors are using; while at the same time keeping quiet about the ones it uses itself.

Do you have an example of a good Contributor License Agreement that doesn't just sound like "do work for us and we'll pay you less than minimum wage"?

Does that suggest at least 4 countries with NSA-like taps into the data.
I like the Surface hardware.
The problem is Microsoft's habit of killing support and forced upgrades (remember IE6, Zune, Visual Basic, etc).

But as it is now, you're buying an expensive brick.
