 Replying to [comment:24 wwaites]:
 > Sometimes the problem CF seems to be worried about is DDoS sometimes it
 is comment spam. Those are typically very different things and are
 protected against in very different ways. Indeed it is quite hard to use
 Tor to do many of the more common amplification-style DDoS techniques. Can
 we please try not to muddy the waters by having an ambiguous threat model?

 I was giving the example of comment spamming because the Project Honeypot
 is a third party. It gives you an idea of what's happening through Tor.
 Comment spam is something we deal with, along with DDoS attacks and
 hacking of web sites (SQL injection etc.). Different techniques are used
 for different attack types.
