Many of the "official" Linux kernel / distro / community channels and forums "block tor" too, so any attempted point of general comparison on that basis to BSD is void. Same goes for Windows and Mac. FreeBSD still maintains its first original and "official" means of "support" on mailing lists,

https://forums.freebsd.org/ Users can reach their forums by finding exits that work / NEWNYM. They obviously run some form of blocking system but may not be aware of impacts... especially of the tor users that want to read and participate there. They're pretty friendly and open to trying things.
