Re: Any plans to fix tor for OpenDNS?

Thanks for the link.  I had switched to OpenDNS to avoid some of the critical 
problems recently with "normal" DNS servers.  

On another note, every time I post to this list, soon after I get a message 
from typepad asking me to confirm my post by replying to the typepad message.

Can this be turned off somewhere?  I've never seen this before with any other 
mailing list I've ever belonged to.
