[tor-talk] torslap!

i read the messages about websites making it hard to register for torians.
these guys throw out the wheat with the chaff.
but dont you know to separate wheat from the chaff?
thresh that shit, yo:


"Like hashcash but much much worse."

server gets request from tor exit to register
server sends back with javascript "You've been Torslapped!"
client presses button "Watch me now hey"
client clicks
wait...hash...work it now baby
hash...wait...drivin me crazy
(average 5 hours later)
javascript says "Success. Click to continue"
client sends solution
server verifies and sends captcha to expire after 5 minute
client solves captcha
server opens gate
anon registers
server flags account

server gets login from tor exit
database sees flag that means this anon already got slapped

(after some abuse tracked to tor exits)
turn up the hate and slap tor noobs harder

(if sybil gets lose in the flagged accounts)
slap time for all accounts with tor flags (nuclear option)

Server just need to send javascript hashing page to client with the rule
and verify the answer (cheap!).

Honest Torians- if pain in the ass is better than censorship than we use
Tor therefore what's another pain in the ass
Troll Torians- you can tie up laptop for five hours hot hashing action or
play your MMORPG but not both. which will they chose?

Honest Torians- waste of five hours register on wikipedia then spend years
to edit. good tradeoff
Troll Torians- waste five hours for each hydra head before even doing
damage. if caught slapped with 7 hours a hydra. Then 10. Then 13.

Because the captcha has expiration troll can not hoard hashes.

Could use the litecoin scrypt hashing algo. sounds like there is now
possible to do gpu hashing for improved efficiency but if trolls don't
have the discipline and dedication to continue attack just when the
free-beer attack vector is blocked from them would they really take the
time to study javascript and improve hash efficiency?

unlike hashcash that make impossible many kind of massive email jobs that
people perform today torslap would make possible kind of registration jobs
that torians are not able to complete.

btw did i say i cannot code any of this sorry :(
