Re: [tor-talk] News from Iran
To be historically accurate, Youtube has been blocked in Iran for at least
three years. Last week, I had compiled a list of open HTTP proxies within
country, and iterating requests for Google, Gmail, and Youtube now,
everything appears to be the way they have been for some time. Somewhat
relatedly, this week, I will be posting a working paper to arXiv on how
Iran has set up a hidden Internet using RFC 10/8 IP addresses.
