I don't think they are blocking Tor at all, or even looking at the exit

(this is a quote from my original message)
The site is not blocking Tor by exit-node because I get the same error
message when I try to register at the site while using a public
high-anonymous elite proxy (L1).  I think the forum administrator is
using headers to decide if a new member is using a anonymous connection
or not.
