This is not for me it's for you. You want Tor users to use FreeBSD, this
is my feedback.

Blanket banning all Tor exits from accessing your *official* support
forum might piss off Tor users who took your advice to install FreeBSD
and now have difficulty getting help.

What you do with this feedback is up to you.

It has always been blocked everytime I have tried over the years.

Dude started a thread specifically to shill FreeBSD to Tor users. At the
very least it seems appropriate to point out that the FreeBSD project
doesn't seem to particularly like Tor.

More optimistically I was hoping that if the original poster is actually
involved with FreeBSD he might be shamed into talking to the folks
responsible and attempt to get it fixed.

For what it's worth I did really like this talk from BSDCan 2016 about
improving on the Tor+Linux monoculture.
