Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop. If you encounter an issue where you cannot post or comment, but voting is functioning correctly, it is most likely because we have implemented a block for VPN & Tor users. If you are using these services, you can still take part in activities such as voting, reporting posts, and performing other passive actions on the site. We implemented this restriction because of users posting illegal content.

See https://lemmy.world/post/11571711

While we value our users’ right to privacy, we also prioritize the protection of both ourselves and our users. We want to emphasize that we weigh the pros and cons of restrictions like these with the entire team. We do not take these actions lightly, and we hope everyone understands the reasoning behind it.

    Opera browser (with data saving on) is now blocked since your (this one) change.

    P.S. : this post should be pinned to the entire site (not only to this community).

        Does that enable Operas built in proxy service?

        Yes, that what Opera Data Saver does.

          So that is probably why it is blocked. That was a guess on my part. I looked at Opera once and did not like where it connected.

          That was a few years ago on a clean device.
