I would be EXTREMELY careful in running an exit on a residential location.

There is no way for you to prove that it was not you causing that
connection but the Tor process causing that connection and thus some
'other' user.

The UK government has all kinds of regulations/systems in place to
protect children and to enforce copyright laws. They are also known to
index/analyze all traffic.

You might want to consider changing that into a relay instead as then
you at least are not reaching out to a "scary" host (unless it also runs

Also: PTR

As such, it looks just like any other link, it has no relation to
tor-relay.itschip.com at all. Except for folks with access to dnsdb,
which law enforcement typically does have, but as DNS is not used in
Tor, it is all irrelevant.
