    7  * Why do I need I2P?
     7 * __Why do I need I2P?__
     8   * Privacy, security, anonymity. We help whistleblowers, dissidents and people subject to harsh penalties for traceably expressing their freedom of expression. I2P is not so much a program you need as a network you participate it. We provide you with instant anonymous webmail, anonymous filsharing, anonymous chat, your own anonymous website. Encrypted, safe, free.  If you believe in the right to privacy, you need I2P.
    89
     10 * __I've heard of Tor. What's different about I2P? Should I use both?__
     11   * I2P and Tor both offer means of communicating anonymously and untraceably on the internet.
     12   * ''duck: awesome question, needs to be compressed for maximum effect.''

     14 * __What is the difference between I2P and Freenet, TOR, JonDoe.__
     15   * ''duck: do people still know Freenet? couple years ago it was the privacy thing that everybody was aware of. any other (regional) candidates?''

    14 I2P and Tor both offer means of communicating anonymously and untraceably on the internet.
     20 * __Is it safe? Has the code been audited? __
     21   * ''duck: splendid stuff, suggest rephrasing to atleast mention privacy / anonymity. safe is too generic.''
     22 
     23 * __Is my router an "exit node" to the regular Internet? I don't want it to be.__
     24   * You're confusing Tor and I2P! By default, everyone on the network participates in the network to help route traffic for other I2P users. We do not configure an "outproxy" on a default installation, so the only traffic a default I2P installation will route will be for other I2P routers (nodes) within the network, encrypted and anonymous by design.
