There is a page in Wiki for ListOfServicesBlockingTor.
It is to be reported by isers about Tor blocks. It has drawbacks

1 It can contain obsolete information.
2 It has a lot of websites actually blocking Tor missing.

We need a better approach. We need an automated service, doing the following:
1 It has a DB
2 It has a table of services (domain/ip and port) blocking Tor
3 It recrawls this services and checks if Tor is still blocked every day/hour/minute/second. When it crawls it connects either using TLS or using netcat, and checks the downloaded text for signs of blocking and similarity to the text of the previous crawl.
4 It has a table of services not blocking Tor and new services to be checked.
5 It has a web spider discovering new services (the services not present in either table) and adding them to the table to be checked.
6 It has a form to add a service manually with free-form description in markdown.
7 It generates the daily report and posts it into the Wiki.
