>...they might be swapping photos of child abuse.

But in this case we know they are swapping pictures of child abuse, we just don't know who they are. The problem is the inverse.

I know something - and that's how little you know. For one, if you did know, you'd be admitting to a crime.

But more-over, even if you investigated Tor exit-node traffic you can't know if any porn you might see was actually being traded or merely continually transferred by repressive regimes to have an excuse to ban anonymity providing services.

You suspect a lot, and have reached some conclusions, but you don't know what it is, let alone who if anyone is doing it.
