RE: Slashdot banning Tor?

 Here my correspondence with Mr. Rozeboom regarding my ip being banned.  As
you notice, it doesn't mention whether or not my ip actually WAS doing
anything, it only says that they banned me because I'm a tor server.  He
made no response to my pointing out that my exit node couldn't have been
used by anyone to crapflood them.

I must point out, however, that this was before the exitpolicy bug was
addressed in the release of tor.

Tor is the cause of your banning. Trolls are using it to crapflood us. If
you stop running it I can unban you.
