[liberationtech] Securing internet traffic/communications with Tor

Hi all,

So it's recently come to my attention that there may be a few issues with
Tor. I'm hoping someone more knowledgeable than me can explain why these
issues exist(our don't exist, inshallah), and what methods(if any) can be
used to mitigate them. I'm just going to cut and paste the commentary in
full, since it's not me but questions from an individual:

TOR can be used. But there are two problems:
1. Skype routes around TOR
2. Using TOR will, if somebody at network central is monitoring, turnon
klaxons. VPN is to common to do that, the network central office becomes to
noisy so nobody can sleep on their desk. TORs biggest utility is for
anonymous surfing. It is not too usable with real time traffic which skype
generates....back to square 1 for live reporting

Thanks in advance.
