Everyone ought to have the right to protect their internet use with
Tor, including imgur rusers. If the Tor community wants Tor to be a
viable way for regular people to use the internet, we should probably
be encouraging websites not to block Tor, and educating them about
Tor's legitimate uses. When Tor users discover another website that
blocks Tor and say, well that's reasonable, we are accepting that
using Tor should be a worse, less usable exeperience for all Tor users.
