comment Gmail and Gtalk over Tor suggestions
I thought a circuit with a pre-specified exit had four hops, Lizbeth? Is it maybe that it almost always has four hops, but maybe not if tor happened to pick that exit by chance?

comment Tor crashes GNOME Shell
Appears fixed now anyways, but generally these sorts of questions should stay around for people who need to debug how badly behaved applications interact with SOCKS proxies like Tor. And Richard's comments were useful.

comment Why doesn't Tor Browser disable cookies?
It's Tor Browser, not Tor. It's a configuration option somewhere, but maybe you'll want an extension like self-destructing cookies, or a cookie saving and reloading extension instead.

comment Tor crashes GNOME Shell
There are no dependencies listed for tor.service. It's part some of GNOME Shell that cannot handle it's socks proxy dying, not anything managed by systemd.

comment ExitPolicy to local machine
Yes, you disable ExitPolicyRejectPrivate obviously, but how does that answer the questions of : Does anyone use private exits? How to use them effectively? Can the be indexed? I should rephrase the question focusing on the last point.

comment How do I revoke a .onion address?
I think Tor hasn't worried about this mostly because their paid to make sure that people living under in repressive regimes can organize and communicate with the outside world. All this makes hidden services kinda an after though for Tor's financial backers. It'll happen eventually though.

Read about how Facebook obtained a certificate for their .onion address.

comment How do I revoke a .onion address?
Actually you could revoke an onion address in the sense that you could revoke any other public key pair : Just issue a message signed by the public key that says nobody should ever use that. Tor has largely specified the formate for such messages, but they have not implemented the code to create them or to use the to prevent anyone else using the key.
