Description

https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/org/projects/WeSupportTor

"Class A - Our list" is a mess.

  1. Please sort them alphabetically. "The Intercept" should go after "Tokumei".
  2. Remove "Autistici XMPP - [wi7qkxyrdpu5cmvr.onion] - [jabber.autistici.org]" because there's no proof.
  3. Remove "Mailbox.Org - kqiafglit242fygz.onion - ​https://mailbox.org/ - ​Proof" because

1) They don't accept refund request.
2) They ask user to modify torrc file to use their own node. This destroy Tor anomity, and Tor Wiki should NOT recommend it!

I already tried to edit it, but it was rejected because "too many link in the post". WTF

Was able to remove MailBox.org, maybe do New Identity and then edit the wiki and that should work.

@cypherpunks Done. I'm not sure my text is correct, though.

"Our list: If you're going to add yours, don't forget to add proof. Also, 1 company/owner can add only one. Don't add yours to the top. This list is sorted alphabetically."

Closing this ticket for now.

Why did you put Mailbox.Org back? Do you really think adding their ".exit" rules to torrc is a good idea?

Someone should add "mailbox.org" to spam filter.

Reopening this ticket because someone added it again!!

https://support.mailbox.org/knowledge-base/article/der-tor-exit-node-von-mailbox-org

Öffnen Sie die Konfigurationsdatei torrc mit einem Editor (siehe: Tor FAQ). Wenn Sie das TorBrowserBundle nutzen, müssen Sie den TorBrowser zuvor einmalig starten und wieder beenden. Dann können Sie die Datei Browser/TorBrowser/data/Tor/torrc in einem Texteditor öffnen und folgende MapAdressen für mailbox.org und alle Sub-Domains am Ende der Datei hinzufügen:

MapAddress mailbox.org mailbox.org.85D4088148B1A6954C9BFFFCA010E85E0AA88FF0.exit
MapAddress *.mailbox.org *.mailbox.org.85D4088148B1A6954C9BFFFCA010E85E0AA88FF0.exit

Damit wird sichergestellt, dass Ihr Datenverkehr durch das Tor Netzwerk bis in unser Datacenter geleitet wird und dort direkt unsere Server erreicht. Im weitesten Sinne könnte man das mit einer Art VPN-Verbindung direkt in unser Rechenzentrum vergleichen.

Write in English goddammit.

Please sort them alphabetically.

Done.

Remove Autistici because there's no proof.

The address changed, and there is proof now.

Mailbox.Org doesn't accept refund request.

Their English knowledgebase now says, "Please get in touch with our support team."
https://userforum-en.mailbox.org/knowledge-base/article/terminate-my-account

Mailbox.Org asks user to modify torrc file to use their own node. This destroy Tor anomity, and Tor Wiki should NOT recommend it!

Their English knowledgebase translates it: https://userforum-en.mailbox.org/knowledge-base/article/how-to-configure-the-torbrowserbundle
I can't say for certain that it destroys anonymity, but I will include a warning in WeSupportTor. FWIW, here is the tor manual's description: https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html.en#MapAddress

I already tried to edit it, but it was rejected because "too many link in the post".

A workaround is described in WeSupportTor above the Class A table. Another cypherpunk said the workaround is "tedious". Administrators are seeking a less stressful solution in ticket #24191.

I believe everything in the OP is resolved. I am closing this thread.
