Comment Policy

Comments are encouraged, but I require that they be kept civil. Specifically, comments that use foul language or attack any member of the community will be edited or deleted.

To prevent spam, I have set WordPress to not allow comments without moderation unless the poster has a previous comment that has already been approved, which is determined by matching the name with the email and IP addresses (not publicly visible) of previous comments.

Also, I have decided to remove comments from some pages that better belong in other locations. If you have a question or comment that directly relates to the text on a page, then it should be posted in the comments on that page. For example, if you have a question or comment about the comment policy itself, it would be appropriate to post it below. If you have a question or comment that does not relate to the text of the page, then it should be posted on the forums.

    Unfortunately, not everyone accesses the Internet by means of an ISP which assigns static IP addresses to its clients! Many ISPs assign temporary IP addresses on a session by session basis, and possibly even changing, or “rotating”, IP addresses during a session. Thus, it will be possible that two entirely different people will be assigned the same IP address, and, as your browser gains popularity, it will become increasingly possible that two different people will visit your website, but be allocated the same IP address!

    Just thought that you might want to puzzle over that detail.

    1. That’s OK. That just means that future comments by that person will need to await moderation before posting.

  2. Hi Soren,

    Is it possible to disable WebRTC in Privacy Browser? As you will be aware, it broadcasts a user’s true IP Address thus negating one of the benefits of using Orbot VPN mode.

    Thanks in advance.
