Is there any wherewithal to devote a Wiki entry to navigating the “privacy conscious” or “Tor friendly” web? I want to narrow the problem to services where there may be compromise or a lack of a concerted effort to blacklist entire internet blocks.
Perhaps we could brainstorm the problem and the solution. The problem, generally is the poor reputation of the Tor userbase. The question I pose is whether we can improve our reputation or legitimately work within the TOS of these services to operate normally.
Reddit is effectively segregating Tor users from the population. Is there a solution other than exiting to a clean proxy/VPN?
Does Telegram freely allow Tor users (accepting that I have access with a valid phone number)?
PrivacyTools does not allow registration on their Matrix federated server… not sure whether that is Tor-specific?
Has it come to this purely because of bad actors?
I’d like to believe that Whonix users generally “raise” the standard of the Tor userbase. We’re just a proverbial “drop in the bucket,” however.
How is it on these other supposedly “privacy conscious” or “Tor friendly” networks? Is there any interest in a Wiki entry for sorting out these problems?
I am capable of technical workarounds, my question pertains to the problem of the popular services that claim to be tech- or privacy- oriented, yet segregate Tor users. Do we have any leverage aside from exiting to a clean node?
