I've searched high and low for a modification that can detect Tor or proxy users. Personally I've had one too many banned members just create another identity and troll/spam about. Now let TOR... Give you problems NO MOR! Now when those pesky Tor or proxy users visit your site, you can block them and redirect them to a custom error message!

You can also alert your members that Tor or proxies is not a nice thing to use! You can customize the message and it also allows to be closed.

Pro version is worth the $5, or if you're like me.. 50% off for sharing on twitter.

WELL worth it.
