If you believe that, then you didn't read it properly. To start
with, he was confused because he couldn't select exit, having
not specified an exit policy. However, I was referring to the original
question leading to this subthread: “You mean I can't make it only
function as an exit node using TBB? or it is no way to make it function
only as an exit node except that I modify the source codes?” (Feel free
to verify that quote if you're in a pedantic mood.) It makes no sense
to me why somebody would want to fire up a, presumably temporary,
exit-only relay.

Incidentally, mailing list threads are much easier to follow if you
don't top-post. I'm sure others will thank you.
