 proxy throw tor http request's?
 > Turning tor into a web service proxy is a bad idea for user anonymity
 and privacy. The web proxy then gets to see all of your requests and who
 you are. There are a number of these websites out there that supposedly
 point http/https proxy requests to tor. It's also a bad idea from the
 server side. The ISP hosting the server and the owner of the server also
 get to see all of the user traffic along with where they are in the world.

 As a case, it should force https usage, to protect user from sniffing

 And i can give you china example, when people just want to see other side
 of the moon.
