I am a journalist covering an area few cover: the "darknet." If you agree that I am a journalist stand by me, agree loudly. If my research is useful to you, speak up. I am careful to not break the law. A nation is trying to take me down. Please voice your support for my work.
I chose to publish under a pseudonym. Why? I knew that journalists critical of law enforcement are the most likely to be harassed by them. Those critical of USA prosecutions are the most at risk. I now sadly know that my choice to publish anonymously was prudent.

"Democracy dies in darkness." It's long been my belief that the most ethics-violating investigations are those against users of the Tor network. I believe journalists, activists, researchers should all closely scrutinize darknet investigations and learn from Tor OPSEC practices.
