I'm wondering would Tor be useful in the event that a p c was confiscated by some authority who searched it. Would they not find the emails the user had sent along with the messages and the email address it was sent to ? Or made purchases from?
Maybe I'm missing the reason Tor exists, but I'm old and not up on all the stuff being done on the internet..
Lets say I'm buying stuff from someone who turns out to be breaking the law ,say selling me stolen goods ( against my knowledge) he is busted,but was using Tor, the police look into his computer , find me ,then take my computer ,and I'm in trouble for receiving stolen goods, or if not that, maybe I'm forced to return all the goods I have resold,and am sued ,the potential endless.
