this is extremely interesting--thank you! but would this work for Tor,
since presumably the IPs that are blocked are those of the exit relays?

I am proposing keeping the IPs blocked but opening them up for certain
logged-in accounts--I don't know if that is technically possible, but it
seems like a narrower solution, and also theoretically less open to
abuse/spoofing than unblocking entire IP addresses. (maybe.)
