[tor-relays] Exit policy question

                I recently had a dedicated server free up and decided to set it up as a Tor relay.  It has 100Mbps unmetered traffic, so I thought it would be a good contribution.  Right now I have it set up as a middle node, but I am considering possibly converting it to an exit node.  Both my server and I are based in the US.  I asked my hosting company about the possibility of running a Tor exit node and they said that they do not have a policy against it, but that if they get a lot of complaints they might set up and ACL on specific ports.  So I really would like to reduce the probability of getting any complaints.  I have heard about the reduced exit policy.  What are people's experience running with that policy?  Is there a further reduced set that might be better, in the sense of avoiding complaints, and still remain useful as an exit node?  Should I just leave it as a middle node?  Thanks in advance for any feedback.
