As Ronger Dingledine said in a tor talk somewhere in germany "there are
a lots of stupid guys out there using tor". The stupid guys commit a lot
of abuses so, for example, wikipedia doesn't tor users to modify
anything in order to prevent abuses. Maybe digg.com does the same, I
don't know. You can try to change circuit by clicking "new identify" on
vidalia: if this works only the ip of the previous exit node was banned.
If it doesn't probably all tor exit nodes are banned.
