Using Tor may actually draw attention - especially if you run a node. People have been busted for the traffic of OTHERS running through their nodes. It's an interesting fight if you are concerned about privacy and freedom of speech. But if you're just looking for a way to do illegal stuff, it's bad news. (Though I'm sure many-a-hacker hath found solace in Tor) If you just don't want your small town ISP knowing that you look at totally legal T & A, well... more power to ya. I am no expert, but this is what I have picked up through this forum and articles on Digg.
