Kommentar:

Vet inte om jag är helt bekväm med det här. Det är ju det här VPN-företagen lovar att de inte ska göra, lämna ut information till myndigheterna.

Visst, killen verkar vara ett förstklassigt svin och kriminell men om VPN-företag lämnar ut information när polis, åklagare och myndigheterna vill ha den, är löften om total anonymitet så mycket värda då, egentligen?

Svår balansgång, för samtidigt så ska ju inte missbruk och svinpälsar komma undan.
