It's easy to build an up-to-date list of Tor IP addresses that allow connections to your service, so you could set up this distinction only for Tor users.
This way you can have multi-tiered access and not have to ban every aspect of your service.
For example, the Freenode IRC network had a problem with a coordinated group of abusers joining channels and subtly taking over the conversation; but when they labeled all users coming from Tor nodes as "anonymous users," removing the ability of the abusers to blend in, the abusers moved back to using their open proxies and bot networks.

Second, consider that hundreds of thousands of people use Tor every day simply for good data hygiene — for example, to protect against data-gathering advertising companies while going about their normal activities.
Others use Tor because it's their only way to get past restrictive local firewalls.

Not much, in the grand scheme of things.
The network has been running since October 2003, and it's only generated a handful of complaints.
Of course, like all privacy-oriented networks on the net, it attracts its share of jerks.
Tor's exit policies help separate the role of "willing to donate resources to the network" from the role of "willing to deal with exit abuse complaints," so we hope our network is more sustainable than past attempts at anonymity networks.

Since Tor has [many good uses as well](https://community.torproject.org/user-research/persona/), we feel that we're doing pretty well at striking a balance currently.

This response underscores a fundamental flaw in IRC's security model:
they assume that IP addresses equate to humans, and by banning the IP address they can ban the human.
In reality, this is not the case — many such trolls routinely make use of the literally millions of open proxies and compromised computers around the Internet.
The IRC networks are fighting a losing battle of trying to block all these nodes, and an entire cottage industry of blacklists and counter-trolls has sprung up based on this flawed security model (not unlike the antivirus industry).

The Tor network is just a drop in the bucket here.
On the other hand, from the viewpoint of IRC server operators, security is not an all-or-nothing thing.
