So I had a thought. It seems like a lot of the relays run off of various port numbers (of course). However if all of the relays and bridges are running off of various port numbers (ie 9001, 10000, etc.), couldn’t this stop censored users (who’s isp or local firewall only allows certain ports like 80 and 443) from being able to connect to the tor network even when using bridges due to the port that the bridge of guard relay being run on a port number that is blocked by the isp or local firewall?

Just a thought.
