You make a fair point, all except one thing...
The subject I mentioned in my previous post - my personal point of interest - involves making items that could result in me being labelled as a
terrorist if the wrong people were to see what I was searching, so the idea of covering my tracks by using tor intrigues me. I must stress at this
point that I have absolutely no intention of actually making such items, I just enjoy learning how certain things are made. You never know, the
knowledge could prove useful if a zombie apocalypse were to happen
But like you rightly point out, even tor isn't entirely safe for those kinds of searches, especially for beginners like myself, hence why I wouldn't
touch it until I felt I knew enough to use it properly or if I basically had someone to 'hold my hand' so to speak.
Heck, you could land yourself in trouble just for talking about tor. I was describing it to a workmate and I mentioned something I saw earlier on this
this thread about how you can be a few clicks away from child porn etc. The response I got was "don't go around telling people that you know how to
get to that kind of stuff, you only need one person to get the wrong idea and you'll be doomed." Again, a fair point to make.
So yes, I agree with you to a certain extent, just bare in mind that not everyone is evil or naive
