In addition to this and the other holes pointed out below, also don't
buy that mocha-double-iced-caramel-latte on a credit card, use a rewards
card for discounts, etc. etc. (also: using a system you use for other
purposes has a good chance of leaking something).

As for sites that block tor, has anyone set up a centralized place where
we can post and confirm which sites have blocking models which appear to
block tor users? It would be nice to simply see the breadth of sites
that are either outright blocking tor, plus those which put up some
captcha/human check (and what methods are being used).
