I guess tor.conf could have a directive as "never connect to this port".
I know my situation is a bit particular, I fully realize, though.

Anyway, I am tunneling quite a bit of traffic, so I hope I am being
useful, even if not useful to everybody. With your comments I am afraid
that I could be punishing the network because people trying to go thru
me could be unable to create some circuits in an silent way, bringing
connection delays and a general sense of unrealibility.

I accept suggestions.
