[tor-dev] blacklisting relays with end-to-end correlation capabilities?

Dear tor directory authorities,

TLDR: Would you blacklist relays with end-to-end correlation capabilities?

I'm asking to find out whether it makes sense to put any effort into
finding such operators [2]. If most dir auths would not blacklist such
relays than it does not make sense to look for them I guess.

So please let us know whats your opinion on that - thank you.

More information below and there [1]:

The process could look something like this:

- someone identifies such a relay groups (basically based on contactinfo
- contact the operators asking to fix this (ideally this would be a
@torproject.org sender)
- give them 15 days to fix it
- if not fixed: blacklist respective guard relays
- give them the possibility to get removed from the blacklist once fixed
