Motion from NancyD re VPNs

Previous Approved Motion: 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)

New Additional Motion: An exception may be made in the case of a newcomer, allowing them to utilize a VPN to avoid fear of security risks.

Motivation: We are an anonymous group as far as practicable, but a newcomerís name & location information from their true IP address might present some risk of specific identification of the person, much like a carís license plate at a f2f meeting. While the SLAA Online group has disallowed use of VPNís in the past, the Starlink network does not. Proxy servers & BNCís are disallowed, but VPNís are not specifically named.
