Description (last modified by irl)

We will need to announce to service users that check/tordnsel are having some changes. Had we done #29650 I would be inclined to make a blog post but I'm not exactly proud of this solution, and for most there is nothing new here.

This is blocked by #33506.

A blogpost seems fine and Steph can send it to social networks later. It can be send also to the tor-project@ mailing list once is done.

Can you take a look, see if anything is missing here?

We should wait for #33569 before we send it wherever we are sending it.

With #33569 done, we have now made changes that we should announce.

i've done a summary review and minor corrections.

i'd advise breaking up this sentence, because it's too long to be easily readable:

For exit relay operators that also route their own traffic via their exit relay's IP address and have exit policies specifically to deny access to services that block Tor traffic, such that those services will allow you to connect without Tor, this will no longer work

Announcement looks good to me. If this goes out as a blog post we'll see comments for the parts we didn't think of. If you can, please reserve some time to respond to those comments in the next few days/weeks.

We probably should still do a blog post specifically about the DNS service, but I posted the announcement at:
