Similarly... there's generally not much use for tor-over-vpn unless
local access to tor is blocked but to your vpn is not, your local use
of tor is somehow frowned upon where vpn is not, or you want
more/selectable exits than your vpn offers (just use tor).
Vpn-over-tor will get you inbound binding capability, and
access to services that block tor exits but not vpn exits (just
use vpn).
Vpn usually requires non-anonymous payments.
Tor alone is more 'anonymous' than vpn alone.
