Well, does the distributed hosting work with TOR?

What about with a VPN (like the free one included in Opera)?

Yes, it’s in the article, but over half the users are not using tor and the site itself is encouraging them not to.

I know the article says they can connect using Tor. But by reading that paragraph, I couldn't be sure if that allows the distributed hosting to continue working properly, or if it just allows access but defeats the distributed hosting functionality.

I feel like people should visit their ridiculous site and represent less hateful perspectives. The problem seems to be that they are living in an echo chamber.

I find it weird that only religious groups have missionaries, but that humanistic groups do not - certainly not on the same scale. “Hello, I am from the not-church of modern day humanists. Can we talk to you about ethics?”
