If you hang out with criminals, sooner or later you'll encounter a
situation where there is a reasonable suspicion that you committed a
crime. Not because you hung out with criminals but because something
criminal happened while you were hanging out with the criminals and
with only a partial set of facts it appears likely that you did it.

It takes extraordinary diligence to hang out with criminals yet remain
personally above reproach. It's a tightrope many news reporters have
to walk. I have yet to see such diligence practiced in the operation
of a Tor node.
