Excellent intro! I just miss some explanation why I would *want* to turn off the JavaScript features for my home node, as it is recommended in the tutorial...

    It isn't your homenode that you should be worried about. My homenode could easily contain javascript to steal your PM password (or any number of other things). And I might fool you into visiting it.

    Fairly recently we changed the defaults such that most foreign javascript doesn't work (by default). See Tidings.

      Thanks for clarification!
