Thanks for all the feedback everyone.
Running a TOR edge node sounds like a fair bit of hassle. I've heard
many anecdotes about homes being raided. Good luck if you do go ahead
"Even if the current definition of what is to be retained under the
data retention regime is limited to certain information, there is the
likelihood that this definition will expand at a later date.
Additionally there is the threat that innocuous activity could
inadvertently raise suspicion through false positive identification.
This could in turn increase the amount of warrants issued on innocent
people, warrants which will then cause the retention of extra content
in relation to these people. Thus, average users could be more likely
to come under the increased scrutiny of a preservation order so
protecting data that is outside the purview of the mandatory data
retention regime may be advisable." ->
Also this is really something I've been intending to do for a while
now. Hopefully given the introduction of data retention it will be
easier to encourage people to join.
