What are the reasons to delete this question: https://tor.stackexchange.com/users/recently-deleted-questions/923 Since, it is deleted and folks can not find that, I restate the title of the question for the purpose of the discussion.
Why does Tor use three hops instead of Four? Or even better why Tor does not use random number of hops greater than or equal to Four?
The question was marked as duplicate by a moderator, I was editing the question and intended to request to reopen the question at a proper time in future. But the action to delete that was surprising if not shocking!
