We'll soon be getting rid of our clearweb presence and going strictly darkweb

Better copypaste that Tor information into an email to yourself so you have it. Oh wait, I guess the clearweb address is still going to lead to an HTML page with that information.

If you don't want to use the tor browser bundle for whatever reasons, there's always the Brave browser.

In private window mode, Brave has an option to use tor.

I think at least one site should be on the clear web to keep the links of the tor sites on display for non-tor users. An annoying thing about tor is you have to re-sign in every time you close the window.

Weebs and blackpill.is don't seem to need that much extra security.
We have a lot of issues to sort out, like whether we're going to have email notifications. Those are a security risk. ⚓ T6 Figure out what our plan is for email

Bottom line is, it's getting more expensive to have a controversial website these days, unless you're willing to sacrifice a lot of capabilities (like notifications).

Can we give up the notifications only on the clear web? No need to throw the baby out with the bath water.

There's going to be (1) darkweb sites, and (2) clearweb sites behind CloudFlare. The point of CloudFlare is to hide the IP address so you don't get DDoS'ed. If you're sending out emails from any of the sites, that's exposing the IP address, creating a DDoS vulnerability.

Some ways around that could be to create a relay server or to use some mailing service like Mailgun, but we got kicked off of Mailgun so we're not using them anymore. FiC is looking into other options. Using a relay server is going to cost money and/or complicate matters because it involves using not just one system but two systems.

Some of the sites, like RGIF, might get kicked off of CloudFlare too, so they just need to go totally darkweb. As for DDoS, though, any incel site anywhere is going to be a potential DDoS target, so exposing the IP address is just a bad idea, even if the less controversial sites were to be moved to their own server.

The tor site for RGIF can be advertised on all the other clear web sites. I don't think email notifications are that important, we can try to make them work later.

Now that towncel isn't making problems anymore it can be disabled. I don't think it's needed as long as we can ban ip addresses.
Except you can't, it would only result in you banning tor nodes.

And banning tor nodes would be terrible for the privacy of the users (if you have clearwep presence).

We're only talking about the surface web ip addresses.
