@antonlopez Maybe we don't need it now, but will in the future? Or maybe it is the best way to access it from some countries? Not a bad thing to do, even if not needed at the moment, i think.

@jd

Yup! Maybe it is, I'm just being ignorant.

I hope more trained people drop the Internet oligopoly and do things like this.

@antonlopez @jd
I don't see the sense of this at all tbh. You're not getting around any censorship by making wikipedia a hidden service. Either Tor is blocked or not. If it is, you won't be able to access wikipedia either way. If it isn't, you'll be able to access it via Tor either way.

@Maltimore @antonlopez I have been told by Iranians that Tor works for them. But that was a while ago.
