For those who says Tor is traceable!

Tracking down Tor users requires lot of time and efforts... To track the tor users the attacker or the Government agencies should check/analyze each of the tor node that the user is connected to (where 1st node only knows where the traffic is coming from and the last tor node only knows where is traffic is going to not from where its coming...,) in real time. it is impossible when you change the tor circuits once a ten seconds and mainly hackers(good people somewhat like gray hat) strictly advised to disable JavaScript on the browser to prevent ipleaks. All the ad's, tracking scripts on the web were build using js, most of the people who caught on darkweb by police are literally not even following some basic OPSEC rules like browsing tor on tor focused Linux distro's like tails, whonix . especially when downloading torrents from Tor on Windows machine with AV running. so its 99.99% safe to use Tor when you follow strong OPSEC.

Admins don't read DMs, and I'm hoping that soon enough that'll be encrypted and I won't be able too.
Mastodon DMs should be considered "restricted messages" visible to people mentioned.

DMs are not that important when snapchat exists for sexts, and signal exists for crimes!

Real chat style DMs similar to Twitter/facebook is coming to the ecosystem soon and will be encrypted and secured from admins... but until then, you need to consider "DMs" in mastodon different than the normal style.

It's more of a direct toot, then a direct message.

and in fact, the #mastodev team really should rename Direct Messages to Direct Toots or restricted because people have mental associations with the word "direct message"... and I get annoyed when I see a DM in my timeline and the back of chat style DMs..
