[tor-talk] More and more websites block Tor, which will eventually become useless!

…what I'm saying is: Tor could be much more than just a proxy tool, it 
could be a public campaign—with all the “dirty work” your generic 
public campaign has. (Well, it's not /that/ dirty, actually; it's funny 
once you get involved.) Activism, PR, fundraising, education, etc. The 
only reason this isn't done yet, I suppose, is that people who enjoy 
programming web servers probably do not usually enjoy running campaigns 
like the one I describe. Well, it could be a good idea then to find 
human rights activists, all around the world, who know how to do it, 
and collaborate. Support those harrassed for providing Tor access, make 
it a matter of public debate, find sponsors, make journalists write 
about it, engage volunteers. I feel a bit stupid saying this. Why don't 
people work on it already? Maybe they do, and I'm just showing my 
ignorance now?

I run exit from home publicly and encourage others to do the same. I'm 
convinced this is the only way Tor can survive in the long run: 
together we stand, divided we fall. If someone reads this with “my 
thoughts exactly” in their heads, please email me, we'll cook something 
up soon. Or make a special topic in *tor-talk*. [Mailing lists make an 
awful communication medium, though—I don't even understand who will see 
this message and how to provide a discussion link for outsider. :-(]
