I wish for it to be noted here that apparently, some Tor exit nodes are in the list of United-TI's banned IPs, presumably because some people are abusive jerks.

Because of this, users who use Tor or any of the Tor-based portable browsers methinks will be unable to post to United-TI unless they disable their proxy use, even if the proper login credentials are supplied.

P.S. To those who are about to suggest that I refrain from using Tor, I have my personal reasons for not disabling it. Neutral

Any chance you could PM me the IPs in question?

DarkerLine and any of the other staff who may be reading: don't construe my post as a complaint; I don't think IP bans are made without rhyme or reason here. I only wanted to inform others who may be using (or planning to use) Tor and accessing this site.

About the banned IPs: I've disabled logging on my Tor installation to save space on my antique computer, but will enable it now so I can send you sample IPs.

Yes there was some Tor IP's blocked because of abuse. It should also be noted that Wikipedia blocks the same IP's that were banned here.
