[liberationtech] Facebook available as a Tor hidden service

I tried to login (with a fake account I maintain for just such a
purpose). "Your account is temporarily locked," it says. I get that; it
appears I'm trying to login from a strange location.

To proceed, I have to ID pictures of friends. Ok, I say. But the page
with friends' photos doesn't load, probably because I have Javascript
off (common practice with the Tor Browser). Fail.

Let's say people take this seriously -- to do so, they will have to use
Javascript, which is a bad move when using Tor.

It seems to me that this would just inculcate bad security habits for
any would-be Dark Web users.
