Re: [tor-talk] TorBirdy seems to connect to the same exit node again and again

On second thought there is an advantage to discouraging the use of the

check would leak the intention to use tor by connecting to
check.torproject.org. Not a big deal, unless the socks port isn't set
or becomes unset, and a bridge is being used by tor.

If this is the concern that request to check.torproject.org might compromise security, this is the clear indication that TorBirdy/TBB aren't adequate for the requirements. Clearly, such people should switch to VM isolation, and there is no need to ever go to check.torproject.org from there, and there is no risk even if one does.
