People with this attitude virtually ensure that Tor will never be
successful and doom any movement towards privacy on the Internet to failure.

I know I must sound like a broken record, but I believe that at least
some people here are still simply not listening.  People who use RBLs
for hard blocking services generally find the strategy to work quite
well.  They are not out of their fucking minds, they are using a
practical approach to a practical problem and they are being successful.

I would argue that privacy activists and coders who do not appreciate
this point and think really hard how to deal with it are making a very
big mistake.

This does not by any means apply to the Tor community at large.  Most
people here have responded thoughtfully to these sorts of issues.  I
merely want to stand up and say I *love* privacy _and_ I use RBLs for
hard blocking services.

And you know what?  I'm not out of my fucking mind.
