I use Tor on a daily base. Looks like you visit interesting places on the net, if it does not work - Government sites for example. From my point of view any connection a program makes to any "service" that I did not ask for is not accceptable, what "good" intentions ever. E.g. "Bad site protection" in firefox gives your browsing hotory to a private company - that's not fair exchange for a mediocre blacklist.
