Run Tor as a relay node.

Perfectly safe from a legal a perspective and a security perspective, it will run nicely in a chroot for extra security and good instructions for setting this up are at: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/to ... orInChroot

You can easily control how much bandwidth you want Tor to use (RelayBandwidthRate XXXX KB). A minimum of 20 KB is asked for but as Linode give you a 2TB of data you can spare a little more than that and not max out your cap ;)

Help with the good fight :!:

I don't think you can say it's "perfectly" safe from a legal perspective, though as I pointed out it's unlike you'll get arrested if you take every reasonable precaution to block illegal traffic.

Tor relays only move encrypted traffic between other Tor nodes, so yes it is perfectly safe to run one. There has never been a case of a relay operator being in trouble.


This is not the case for exit nodes, where anonymous traffic exits the Tor network.

I would agree with Piki that "perfectly" is a strong word to use, as is "never".

One thing you could do would be to start some sort of publicly useable website. For example, you could use the multisite feature of Wordpress to start a blogging service on a specific topic. You could also use this and the Buddypress extension to create a social network hosting site were people could create their own social network for various groups. I'd do it, but such a website wouldn't really fit with what we're working on, plus I'm already planning a wiki host. You could also use ads if it gets popular to offset the added cost of resources.

Make a VPN for your private use, whenever you connect to a public/semi-public wifi!

Isn't the KKK now on Tor? I heard that they got kicked off both GoDaddy and Google Domains recently.
