    Why the fuck do you need Tor to surf PF?

    The primary use of Tor is to spoof your IP address. IP addresses are logged here for management purposes (it lets them know when someone is fucking around with alt accounts) they are within their rights to block Tor. Tor has also been known to be used in spam attacks on websites. I can fully understand why they block it.

    What the canadian said.

    the reasons one would use Tor:

    Looking at illegal questionable content (hey-ooooo)

    Torrenting loads of stuff that you don't want attached to your I.P adress

    Spam attacks on website(s) - They can switch I.P's on the fly. 4chan too, blocked Tor. If you try to use it while active then 11/10 times you will see a banned screen

    I used to use it, but then learned that the government has a backdoor in Tor, and can rape you royally if you don't know how to protect yourself.

        Due to a recent incident, we've implemented a ban system to block an ip who is trying to steal from us. Chances are that someone used Tor as a proxy when they got banned and now that proxy is banned. @Brian would be the one to answer that question to the full extent though.

        I banned the entire Tor network. Tor can suck my juicy e-wang.

        Why are you using Tor?

            Indonesia's bullshit affects Australia? :sarcastic:

            Whatever stupid shit is going on over there won't change the Tor ban so you'll have to find an alt I'm afraid, though you seem to be doing fine.

            I was pretty confused at first as I was sure you lived in Aus. Glad to know you've come up with a solution to your issue.

            Locked.
