Re: [tor-talk] [tor-relays] Exit in Turkey blocking torproject (komm EA93C), BadExit, Node Subscription Services, Censorship
The exit is behind a filtered ISP. Opposed to a website blocking exits.
That’s the difference.
1) The content provider causes the block.
2) The exit causes the block.
In situation two a censored user may give up on Tor entirely. Should we
allow exits in China or Iraq or Syria or Turkey or the several other
countries. What if their governments who can afford it spin up 10,000 exits
in an effort to censor the Tor Network. Will we sit idly by and allow it?
