Please let us know how many of the 150 fallbacks are reachable on their ORPort.
(Most Tor clients just use the ORPort.)

If they've all been blocked, we can work with the Tor Browser team to deploy
some extra fallbacks in Tor, or in a torrc file.

(I also wonder if all the historical fallbacks have been blocked.)
