Welcome to Tor Stack Exchange
We're a little bit different from other sites. Here's how:
Ask questions, get answers, no distractions
This site is all about getting answers. It's not a discussion forum. There's no chit-chat.
Good answers are voted up and rise to the top.
The best answers show up first so that they are always easy to find.
The person who asked can mark one answer as "accepted".
Accepting doesn't mean it's the best answer, it just means that it worked for the person who asked.
Good DNS services for exit nodes
Open DNS and others hijack failed DNS lookups. Some DNS services censor or block access to sites due to government or corporate coercion. Is there a list of preferred DNS servers, ones that don't censor or hijack the lookups that Tor exit nodes can use?
If there is no list of preferred DNS servers, can we build one?
http://www.opennicproject.org/ please keep in mind that by using a dns server you provide valuable information to the operator of the dns server, because the operator CAN SEE the requested lookups: : )
Get answers to practical, detailed questions
Focus on questions about an actual problem you have faced. Include details about what you have tried and exactly what you are trying to do.
- Specific issues with Tor
- Theoretical or practical aspects of Tor
- Getting involved with Tor
- Privacy concerns
- Legal aspects of using Tor network
Not all questions work well in our format. Avoid questions that are primarily opinion-based, or that are likely to generate discussion rather than answers.
Questions that need improvement may be closed until someone fixes them.
Don't ask about...
- Anything not directly related to Tor
- Questions that are primarily opinion-based
- Questions with too many possible answers or that would require an extremely long answer

Use comments to ask for more information or clarify a question or answer.
You can always comment on your own questions and answers. Once you earn 50 reputation, you can comment on anybody's post.
