Tor presents several problems for websites.

The first is that it doesn't send the HTTP_REFERER header. Without that, a site can't tell whether a form has been submitted by a logged-in user or a spambot. That affects everything from logins to post submissions.

The second problem is that Tor routes traffic through a proxy server. Proxy servers have their legitimate uses, but they're also tools for spammers, previously-banned users, and other shenanigans.

The third, and possibly most annoying, is that the Tor developers shift the responsibility and burden of fixing things to website administrators. The idea is that programmers and sysadmins should rewrite their software to make using Tor easier.
