Comment (by ioerror):

 Replying to [comment:94 seanrose]:
 > Why is CF even blocking Tor on sites that don't historically receive
 abusive traffic from Tor IPs in the first place? The "whitelist tor IPs"
 thing should be the default on all sites and only turned off when
 significant abusive traffic patterns are detected from Tor IPs.

 If the main data is really project honeynet - there are some exits with a
 "threat score" of 0 and some with a none zero score. It appears that this
 data isn't tied to specific sites, it is just a single dimension of data
 based on the ip address. That suggests a very unsophisticated analysis, so
 I must be missing some critical detail of how and when CF's censorship
 trigger is pulled.
