I use the current TorBrowser Bundle with current TorButton and
RefControl to spoof the referrer headers. I also use vanilla Tor,
Vidalia and Privoxy with the same result. I tired spoofing my
user-agent away from the default TorButton U-A settings, I spoofed
Mac, Firefox, IE, Opera, etc, all for not.
Does anyone know how I can circumvent this block? I at least would
to know what in my headers is setting off red flags as that means all
other Tor users in my anonymity set are potentially setting off red
