FTA:

"notes Patrick Jackson, the ex-NSA engineer who is now CTO of Disconnect"

Yeah.. sounds like a good choice for a default TBB Search Engine... NOT!

"What prompted the change in search engine? Are we now getting paid to include disconnect as the default search engine?"

"We don't get paid for that as it currently stands. But Startpage was not happy with our traffic and showed sometimes CAPTCHAs. Disconnect on the other hand approached us with respect to search engine traffic and donated some money."

Donated some money? Hahahahahhaaha. I wonder WHY they approached Torproject? You don't get paid for that CURRENTLY? Nice wording! But there was a DONATION, rrrriiiiight? I can't wait for future news! Please do let us know if and when you start collecting further $$ from the source.

I am insulted. I will continue to use Startpage's free web proxy service in TBB, and DuckDuckGo's .onion hidden service free search engine:

So what's next, Torproject? Keystroke logging for Amazon or another company? Partnering with Recorded Future or something like it? Is this what the project has come to now? But that "Disconnect" Search Engine site is so pretty. So nice and clean, WOW! It sort of reminds me of the polished DoD sites I have wandered through.

With this new "Search Engine", I feel like a rug is being pulled out from underneath me and damn it "that rug really tied the room together."

ROTFLMAO!
Indeed!
It is so Schizo.
I really feel compassion for Tor though. I mean they had to get the startup $ somewhere,
so it is so sad that there's so much money in the defense industries, LEAs. Does anyone here
know an american adage that's sort of "dont bite the hand that feeds you?" THere's other similar
that remind us of the constraints purse strings can produce, even amongst the most conscientious.

I am curious the hear from others:
Doesnt it seem the entire Tor Forum here is LEA written honeypot?

I just take one second to look at the organization of the index, doesnt it begin with the links
to the markets??
More than a glaring difference between the tilt here and the "news"; the "blog"; "overview"; the "wiki".
Each one of the above are organized to familiarize the reader with using the software, not
tempting them to click into the minority of the few nefarious and/or possibly illicit factions of the deeweb!

Another red flag...I go to “reply”, after writing the draft- each time I either choose to save it as draft or post, Im kicked back into the login page (already logged in)
its as if the censorship is real-time....LOL...nahnahnah..
