Is this a typo? Using Tor for BitTorrent traffic is frowned up by the
Tor Project, and the default exit policy is to block common BitTorrent
ports, and BitTorrent clients commonly leak information which has the
capacity to de-anonymize users on the same circuit. I don't see why the
FreedomBox Foundation would want to recommend this, as it doesn't make
sense from a political or technical standpoint.
