As a former head of IT for a global company, we made blocking decisions
based on data. Blocking was enabled for targeted attacks for limited
amounts of time. Infected clients were far, far more problematic than
open proxies, vpns, etc. Mass-hosting facilities were far more problematic
than open proxies, vpns, etc. Tor barely came up on the list ever.

If your goal is to make your information available to any potential or
current customer, blocking them is a bad business move.
