I remember a site one time blocking me because it recognized that I
was on TOR. It explicitly said that they'd had too many problems with
spammers using TOR, so they were (unfortunately) blocking TOr users.
Not sure where they got the list of TOR proxy IPs, but worth a
thought. Of course you will likely block a certain number of legit
users as well that way, but IP blocking always carries that risk.
