If you think being a human rights activist is that simple, you really have *no* idea... For a lot of them, using Tor would instantly blow their cover. We're not talking about people who wear Amnesty International T-shirts or who call themselves "human rights activists" when the pass through immigration. We're talking about people who for all practical purposes have a job as hard or harder than "real" spies. They do not have the the support and resources of their own government, they do not have a spare diplomatic passport and a new identity waiting for them at the embassy, and they certainly cannot afford those sunglasses. Getting it wrong on crypto or comms-footprint will at the very least cost them a year in some Elbonian mud-jail, worst case they die in a "traffic accident" or "commit suicide" in a turkish air-port toilet. >but we should improve the Handbook so gdbe vs. geli >strengths and weaknesses are better explained.
