 My primary issue is that I cannot access a site at all. I have zero
 intention of doing anything other than reading this marmalade recipe. I
 would gladly trade having nothing for something.
 >It would be better to solve a captcha or use an anonymous token for
 certain kinds of interactive activity over blanket denial.

 in people's browsers, the PII collected and so on. I'd rather a user have
 an option to hit an archive that is unrelated at that point - wouldn't
 Since I am of the tin-hat variety of TOR user, I do not have images or
 javascript enabled, so solving a captcha becomes nigh possible.
 Interactivity is nice, but I've conditioned myself over the years to treat
 most things through TOR as read-only, and that I can't even do that lately
 for the most benign things is frustrating. It would be nice to have
 options, but at this point, I'd really just like functional basics.
