 Replying to [comment:12 cypherpunks]:
 > 1. "if you are in a country that censors Tor (such as China, Iran,
 Syria)" -> "if you're" / Are you sure that Iran still blocks Tor? You
 should ask dcf if that's the case, and if it isn't then he can give you
 better examples of such countries (Turkey for instance).

 We've talked and decided these were the countries we were going to use as

 > 2. "(not China)" is a bit confusing, is there any better wording
 ("doesn't work in China"/"works in China" or just a single "if you're in
 [China flag]" near meek-amazon and meek-azure)?

 I agree. I don't know how to word this more properly. I want a wording
 * doesn't make it seem like obfs4/obfs3 is inferior because it's blocked
 in China
 * incentivizes people to use obfs4/obfs3 if possible over meek-amazon
 * doesn't lie and say that meek PTs only work in China, or that you should
 use them only if you're in China, since they do technically work

 I had a couple ideas, "works in china/works everywhere" would probably
 make everyone choose meek PTs, because it makes the meek ones sound much
 better. I would like to have obfs4 marked with "recommended" and the meek
 ones marked with "choose if you're in China," but since obfs4 is the
 default, people may click onward without looking at the other options. So
 I'd like to put "recommended, blocked in china" as the description for
 obfs4, and something else in parentheses for the meek ones. I'd be open to

 My best attempt so far, which I don't like too much:

 I'd be open to suggestions.
