Subject: [PATCH 1/3] net_reader: emit .onion help for potential Tor users
Date: Wed, 15 Sep 2021 21:19:41 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210916021943.22529-2-e@80x24.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210916021943.22529-1-e@80x24.org>

We can't easily use torsocks, here, so try to be helpful
when it comes to proxy support.
