Tor: Bridges
So Tor has a way of directly connecting to relays not listed on directory lists/servers, called Bridges. So when the Great Firewall of China or the Berlin Firewall decide to block access to normal Tor entry point information, you can use a side channel such as IM or twitter to get bridge connection details. Since there is no convenient list of Tor Bridge relays, it becomes a game of whack-a-mole or cutting the head off a hydra; it's a losing proposition most of the time.
