Seems they just want to draw as many people as they can in so they can have a larger pool of IPs to bounce off of.
Sorry but your posting sounds like spreading FUD. You are making things up that are simply not true.
Bouncing is OFF by default, you won't have any traffic unless you explicitly enable it. By default it acts as a client only and won't route
anyone's traffic through your IP.
And if you decide to enable the routing feature you can of course throttle the traffic as in any other p2p application too. You can furthermore
control whether it should act as exit or as middleman only and if you want to be an exit you have very fine grained control over which ports and which
IP addresses you want to allow from your exit and which ones to block.
This means you can forward traffic as a middleman WITHOUT allowing exiting at your IP. This mode is safe to use for anyone, neither providers nor law
enforcement care about it because it is PERFECTLY LEGAL unless you are in China or Iran.
You should read the help files that come with it and also the documentation on the project home page and not judge it solely from this thread alone or
from the things that somebody simply makes up because he did not read the manual about how it works and is supposed to be used.
Tor is actually a good thing, the developers are on OUR side and not on THEIRS and there is no reason for speculations what the Tor-project might want
to achieve, they are open and honest about their goals and about how the system works and if you have doubts then all code is open for anybody to
inspect and to see what it really does and how it works.
There are no secrets in the Tor-Project, its all open.
