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.

@neil Wordfence pretty reliably blocks Tor entirely IME. New circuits generally don't help.

@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 - wordfence.com/learn/the-tor-ne

But if they've identified malicious activity from a particular exit node, their hands are a bit tied I suppose.
