Hi Matheu,

I have new insights into the problems of Tor networks and CleanTalk.

In fact, the Tor exit nodes are being blocked by CleanTalk because many 
spammers abuse Tor for their spam purposes. The amount of spam from the 
Tor network must have been so large that CleanTalk generally blocks Tor.

There are also brute force attacks registered, but these are far less 
significant than spam attacks. CleanTalk also recommends not releasing 
these exit nodes, as this will drastically increase spam traffic.

Here are some of the spam & brute force statistics:


The use of other means would also lead to the same result, because after 
a few attacks from the Tor network, the IP address would automatically 
be blocked for a few hours/days. As a result, other honest Tor users 
would not be able to access the website.

It's a shame that such a great project would be misused for such 
inglorious purposes.

I'm going to have to take a closer look at the Tor concept, because I'm 
still a little under-acquainted with it.
