@torproject What if I wrap it in multiple encrypted layers before passing it on?

@torproject I always thought TOR was an acronym of The Onion Router (therefore must be written with upper-case letters).


I know some people who write "ToR" and I keep catching myself using it, too and, well, yeah.

Trips off the tongue better than "the onion routing project" <3

@torproject Oh, I found out. Wikipedia said it's because it used to be an acronym for "The Onion Router", which it isn't anymore

Note: even though it originally came from an acronym, Tor is not spelled "TOR". Only the first letter is capitalized. In fact, we can usually spot people who haven't read any of our website (and have instead learned everything they know about Tor from news articles) by the fact that they spell it wrong.

@ggus i read that article when i was a wee before that international police operation to seize exit nodes) and it did not stick ... non sequitur

@torproject I think that perhaps you are not fully educated on this subject, I am quite sure that it is in fact "TOR".

@torproject i was taught Tor means hill in a non-english language. TOR meant "the onion router". why and when the change?

@torproject As the chairman on Iron Chef would say, "The secret ingredient is...ONIONS!"
