TOR Users on QuakeNet
After a prolonged period of disallowing TOR users on QuakeNet due to abuse, we have decided to update our policy and allow TOR users onto the network. Any user connecting to QuakeNet from a TOR exit node will now automatically have their hostmask set to something similar to the following:
Any channel operators experiencing abuse from users connecting from a TOR exit node (evading bans and so on) can ban the entire TOR network by setting (for example) a ban mask similar to:
/MODE #channel +b !@*.tor.quakenet.org
We hope you enjoy the increased anonymity access to QuakeNet from the TOR network provides. This also solves any issues of users who run TOR exit nodes themselves being previously automatically banned from the network.
