There has been an interestingly sharp rise in news stories about paedophiles / terrorists / other unsavouries using tor and similar in the UK press since the Snowden leaks. They are largely news-free scare stories, and I doubt their timing is mere coincidence. The government here have also started pushing for lots more censorship of the Internet. Scary times ahead.
