Since when was anonymity a crime? Neither entails the other.

I've run a tor relay, and I'm pretty confident that just because I'm up 
in layer 3+ land, common carrier status would apply, if anyone could 
even detect the contents of the traffic passing through my systems in 
the first place (the whole point of tor being to mitigate against 
exactly that).

Some good tips for anyone thinking about running a relay or exit node, 
the first of which is to inform your isp. tor is a great tool, more 
people please!
