[tor-talk] Craigslist now blocking all Tor IPs? Template for anyone:

Craigslist was slowing down anyone with a tor IP, though it appears
they may be blocking the majority now.

The automated messages from Craiglist appear like this:

This IP has been automatically blocked. If you have questions, please
email: blocks-b1406984946068001@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

A template for anyone who feelsl ike emailing craigslist (or their
favorite site):

Please kindly remove Tor IP addresses from the list of blocked IPs
by your site! 

The IP address your site has blocked is from the Tor network, which is
a censorship resistance, privacy, and anonymity system used by whistle
blowers, journalists, Chinese dissidents skirting the Great Firewall,
abuse victims, stalker targets, the US military, and law enforcement,
just to name a few. For more information, please see: 

Unfortunately, some people misuse the network. However, compared to the
rate of legitimate use (the IP range in question processes nearly a
gigabit of traffic per second), abuse complaints are rare.
<https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq-abuse.html.en> As can be seen from
the overview page, the Tor network is designed to make tracing of users
impossible. The Tor network is run by some 5000 volunteers who use the
free software provided by the Tor Project to run Tor routers. 

It is also possible to download a list of all Tor exit IPs that will
connect to your servers at the following link:
