It is true that the old guard of Rationalwiki have generally been averse to using some of the more ’’dodgy’’ methods of working on the internet. However, it pays to know how to protect yourself and your identity, especially if you are considering going toe-to-toe with fascists. So be prepared to unleash your inner HACKER ON STEROIDS, and engage in some sub(Human) cabal sock ice hacking!

An IP address, if you didn’t know, is an identifier for a particular computer’s connection to the internet.


Tor is, to my experience, the easiest way to both mask your IP address, and to avoid IP-based bans.
