Re: [tor-talk] BSD + Tor [was: obfs4proxy / 1024]
Are you aware that the FreeBSD project indiscriminately block all Tor users
from their official forums? Not even read access.
This is a problem because the forums are a vital source of help and
solutions to problems.
Why do you block even read access if not to send a very aggressive message
*against* Tor users?
