I have nothing to hide.
You say that as if the law has ever mattered to any government when they feel like being invasive. When you're in power the law is merely suggestion as compared to something like a solidified fact or rule.I wouldn't be surprised if with the rise of regular people using VPNs, they're making increasing amounts of probing attempts to see how much white noise it's causing, or how many people are actually doing something they perceive as worth 'hiding', how many are using tor on top of that, etc. A forum database like KF could be one of the most useful targets for this. People in five eyes countries outside of the US should be the most concerned, as their countries have shittier laws.
