I'm getting lots of captchas when accessing reboot.pro from Tor. They appear to be coming from CloudFlare, which I assume is set up to protect this community forum from DDoS attacks. This is not my intention. As for why I'm logging into Reboot from Tor, well, I just don't care about being anonymous to *THIS* particular forum. With this said, is there a way to avoid the captchas or make them appear less frequently? Thanks!

There are browser extensions such as FoxyProxy which can be configured to select different proxy setting (or direct connection) based on URL.

You can set to use direct connection for reboot.pro and use tor proxy for other sites.

Good question. We haven't suffered from offline due to DDoS since many months.

 

I've placed in pause the cloudflare filter. You should now be able to browse the site using Tor.

 

Also, you might find interesting to try out alternatives to Tor such as this one: https://geti2p.net/en/because the IP addresses are less known and likely less censored.

 

Good luck.

:-)

@ Karyonix: I'll check into FoxyProxy. I haven't been using Tor long, less than a few months. It seems more and more sites are flagging me. Perhaps they think I'm connecting via a proxy ? (which Tor would seem to be in a way). I may just set up a direct connection for Clearnet sites while using Tor for onion sites.

@ Nuno: Besides DDoS attacks, spammers are another consideration. Perhaps I'm being flagged as a potential spammer?

I've heard of i2p but never used it. I don't plan/want to use hidden sites for anything illegal, mostly just for anon browsing/privacy protection and curiosity/learning.

You shouldn't be getting them now on reboot. We are no longer with CloudFlare activated. Might be the case that spammers (or the US gov. himself) have made the IP addresses of Tor nodes outside government control to be blacklisted.

 

i2p is not bad. No need to justify your usage, one hears too often: "If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry" but then I usually reply that "Even without anything to hide, privacy is a basic human right. Otherwise we wouldn't have locks on bathrooms".

JFYI, we have locks on our bathrooms EXACTLY because privacy is NOT considered AND respected as a basic human right, IF IT was, you would NOT need the lock at all, as noone would ever think of opening the door out of respect for the privacy of the one inside, a simple "someone is inside the bathroom" visual signal (just like the one that is on some train toilets red/green (connected to the actual lock) would be more than enough (without any need of it being connected to the - unneeded - lock).

Same goes for your house door lock, it is completely unneeded if everyone would respect your property.

Yep. Worse thing is that metaphors get quite literal in the US. For example, this case with the bathroom door and privacy in the US has become quite a problem. The door gaps are getting each year bigger, to the point that now you can see from the outside (almost) everything that the person inside the cubicle is doing.

 

So, pretty much no privacy on that side of the Atlantic.

@ Nuno: Many public restrooms in the US don't look as presented in your pic, from what I've seen.

Some establishments in my city have taken to requiring keys or access codes, due to the homeless either using drugs inside or using them as bathing stations. The homeless population here has been estimated to be as high as 10K and rising.

I was living in Pittsburgh, for some reason this kind of bathroom style was increasing in popularity over there. I'd see this more often in public buildings or places like universities.

 

Sad to hear about the homeless population rising. Not easy.
