One of the known shortcomings of Tor is, that through analysis of traffic going 
into the network and traffic coming out connections could be tracked based on 
timing. This is probably a rather theoretical approach, but it is possible. 
Geographical spreading will help a lot to render this approach rather useless, 
because it diminishes the likelyhood of entry point and exit being in one

Hello again all, Sorry for the absent communication but I finally caught up on 
all the email. I specifically was interested in running a node out of Iceland 
because there didn't seem to be any there yet. They also seem to be going 
through a political upheaval that might lead to a good hosting environment. 
Personally I notice that tor nodes suffer from a disturbing lack of geographic 
disparity. I'm also looking into places that fit my criterion major submarine 
cable connection hubs, such as Argentina. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong 
but I feel this is the best way to gain WORLD-wide acceptance/recognition of 
tor before countries can begin to legislate against hosting exit nodes. These 
are just my thoughts of course. - -nood - -------- Original Message --------
