I run a TOR node in OVH (France). They shutdown my server several times
because it was "hacked" in the sense of "we don't think a server should
make outgoing port 443 connections". After a lof of complains and
arguments, and a dozen of shutdowns, I restricted my node to NON-EXIT.
And filter my 443 outgoing at FW level, because even connecting to port
443 of other TOR nodes were considered "you have a compromised machine".

Unsatisfying. But at least I provide 50Mbps to TOR mesh, 24x7, as an
internal relay node. Could be worse, I guess.
