do not modify any settings besides the security slider in TBB.

If you need to view some content in a lower security setting, take the url and put it in a text editor for a second, log out, refresh your identity, lower the setting, and put it back in the browser. then, when you are done, raise the setting back to safest, and refresh your identity, log in.

anything besides this, will make you stick out for a billion reasons, and will seriously weaken your anonymity.

Frankly, I don't get your confusion about this. The text clearly says AND at an important point:

Mit Freiheitsstrafe bis zu drei Jahren oder mit Geldstrafe soll bestraft werden:

wer eine internetbasierte Leistung, deren Zugang und Erreichbarkeit durch besondere technische Vorkehrungen beschränkt ist, anbietet


deren Zweck oder Tätigkeit darauf gerichtet ist, bestimmte rechtswidrige Taten zu begehen oder zu fördern.

Isn't it obvious that crime is illegal? What's your point, people?

Yes, using Ubuntu, I opened its special-characters accessory. And so I worked-/memorised how to make (with Unicode) a couple of accented characters: á and é. So I can spell Fianna Fáil and Sinn Féin!

I was reading about Tor-user problems. So I read that users overestimate what Tor can do. Perhaps someone can explain what the Evil Enemy can do by hosting an exit node and viewing what goes through it?

Anything running on proprietary hardware and proprietary software can be snooped on. But then laptops all have the same problem.
