I have Wordfence on some sites. It seems that Wordfence blocklists certain exit nodes from Tor if it associates those nodes with bad activity. Fair enough, I guess, though a shame that sometimes Tor users will sometimes get bounced as a result.
If it happens to someone, they can start a new Tor circuit to find an exit node that isn’t blocklisted.
@dredmorbius Ah interesting, good to know. I was basing that on a small sample size (me, doing it once, and it worked...)
Shame, and a bit incongruous with what they say here - https://www.wordfence.com/learn/the-tor-network-faq/#should-i-be-blocking-tor-visitors-to-my-website
But if they've identified malicious activity from a particular exit node, their hands are a bit tied I suppose.
