In other words, you are fine with others logging this activity of yours 
(moving around encrypted data). I.e spying on you in exchange for "free" 

To me, FreedomBox is about creating freedom from spying by clever design 
of a privately hosted box.  That particular freedom fight is, I believe, 
what Eben Moglen coined "the silverlining of the Cloud", and that 
particular approach is, I believe, what Eben Moglen coined "FreedomBox".

I am certainly interested in freedom from spying by other means than 
that particular design of a box - but wouldn't call that "FreedomBox".

Other freedoms than that of avoiding spying interests me as well, and I 
would love to include tools for that in my FreedomBox too - optionally.
