Well Jacob is kinda biased when it comes to Tor, to put it lightly, but
this is another topic.
Picking up Tor in this context is actually a really interesting thing,
because it shows why decentralized networks are so important and secure
and why we really should consider Tox here over XMPP and other
centralized protocols (apart from the more obvious advantages).
Even Tor isn't absolutely safe today, considering the new leaks about
node-poisoning. However, this is just one more reason to be able to
specify the node-list yourself when you're using Tox.
