Description (last modified by gk)

We often see complaints by users that large sites are blocking Tor outright or are making it very hard to access them. We should try to find contacts at those sites that are generally Tor-friendly and with whom we could try to resolve or mitigate the problems that led to Tor blocking in the first place.

It's worth to not just focus on site owners as they often "just" deploy things and the actual blocking is done by entities in the middle, like Akamai or Cloudflare, or it is enabled in the first place by (random) Tor nodes added to a blocklist by entities that are curating those. Thus, it is worth reaching out to those groups as well.

This ticket is a parent ticket and we should file child tickets for particular sites/parties we want to reach out to.
