Here's the issue with a website.
When I used VPN plus Tor: I got banned.
When I use VPN (but use a normal browser), I am Ok and can normally do what I have to do at that website.
So, if the Tor exit nodes are publicly known, and the websites have software to sniff our Tor, then the number of websites that disallow Tor will increasingly grow. and there will be a day when Tor can't be used on any website at all, if my logic is OK so far.
So can anyone shed any more light on this? How do I use Tor and not get banned at a website?
I don't have to use any bridge software as I can access Tor directly.
