Not all problems have good solutions, but he is no longer part of the project, the board is being replaced, so those allegedly harassed have got their way.

You say they are all regularly harassed by law enforcement, and that route is not really an option, so now Appelbaum faces harassment from law enforcement and vigilante's, what hope would he have of defending himself if he was innocent.

You cant claim the high ground if you take the law into your own hands.

Moral within an organisation is always important, and stakeholders should have confidence in the board to manage things, but;

This is an organisation that lots of powerful people and government would like to see destroyed, it maintains a product that is controversial, and is used in some extreme circumstances.

Do they really need to manage the perception of their work so aggressively. People will have very strong views for/against TOR independent of perceived employee behaviour.

Can Tor as an organisation be trusted if public perception is more important to them than proven facts.

Is TOR just about money now ?

The purpose of democracy is to hold our leaders to account. Snowdens revelations enabled that to happen for short time.

Our leaders create secret organisations that operate at arms length from them, but it doesnt mean they arent responsible for the actions they undertake. Snowden shone a spotlight on a secret organisation, the secret organisation hate it because they dont benefit from accountability, leaders hate it because its something they dont have control of which they should be judged for.

Never go full retard...
