Motion from troy re use of VPNs and similar:
Motion: Replace current GC approved policy: Disallow any connections to #slaa or #slaa2 through proxy/VPN/tor servers, without requiring discussion with user. In general, all connection methods that hide the userís true location shall be treated in the same way as proxy/VPN/tor servers. (12/3/19)
with the following:
Disallow connections to #slaa or #slaa2 through proxy/VPN/tor servers. In general, all connection methods that hide the userís true location shall be treated in the same way as proxy/VPN/tor servers.
Exception: Members who have registered their chosen nickname, and are currently logged on with this nickname and identified with password, may connect through a VPN or similar.
It was recognized when the existing policy was approved that this restriction might cause inconvenience for some genuine users, but that the restriction was on balance needed for group safety. Since this motion was approved, there have however been significant developments in the general situation regarding VPNs, including:
1. Some respectable ISPs now often handle IPs in ways that flag as VPN - but this is beyond the userís personal control and cannot be turned off.
2. Apple promotes its new (beta) iCloud Private Relay anonymizing service in latest versions of macOS, iPhoneOS and iPadOS, which acts like and flags as VPN.
A revised GC motion is therefore proposed reinstating an allowed exception to the VPN restriction for users with logged in and identified registered nicknames.
