I am fairly sure Freenode allows access through Tor if you are registered
and authenticate with SASL. There might be some additional step required
beyond simple authentication; I recall Tor users complaining about the
requirement. But they may have just been complaining about Javascript or
the need to use a valid email address? Not sure if SSL is required to auth,
but you should really be using it. You need to use port 6697, 7000, or 7070
for SSL.
