[tor-talk] Tor and the National lottery in the UK

Hi All

This is my first post here so 'Hello'

I have recently discovered that The National Lottery in the UK is preventing me from accessing their website (despite the fact that my account has funds in it) because I run a Tor node from my IP address and that I have to not run Tor for six months before they'll allow me to access my account. They do this because they claim I might be outside the UK and use a piece of software made by Neustar to 'geolocate' me. It doesn't cause me a major problem because I can use my phone (probably from anywhere in the world) to access the site but I thought people might like to know.
