 > We didn't make code changes around this, but looking at the trend in
 abuse coming from Tor exit nodes there has been a steady increase in the
 percentage of exits through which we see abuse since December.

 Could you run similar comparisons with Internet access providers using
 Carrier-grade NAT? Could you tell use what qualifies as abuse?

 If abuse is “attacking” your honeypots then your system is simply going to
 fail hard in the next year. Even older Internet access providers are
 ip-a-plusieurs-abonnes.html being forced] to do Carrier-grade NAT as IPv4
 are now a scarce resource. You can't punish millions of users as soon as
 one bad actor hits your honeypots.

 Tor is just being slightly ahead of what the IPv4 Internet is going to
 look like pretty soon.
