Reply to comment by TheNewKing in Do not use VPNs for privacy. by lena

This is a bit misleading. Anyone being able to run a relay is indeed a good thing, but it also enables bad actors to easily setup malicious nodes.

There's simply no better alternatives.

The page makes the argument that VPNs can mess with your traffic, which is definitely true for exit nodes. It is well documented that bad exit nodes have been caught and blocked by the network.

Again here there's no alternative, with all networks you must pass through some "exit" and at that point, if there's no SSL, then you're not secure.
