Please do not run PeerGuardian or any other blacklist. These lists are
part of the problem, and in no way a solution. As stated earlier in this
thread, it will break stuff. These lists are never up to date and always
contain false information.

It is your exit, you can indeed block IPs, but please do it on the level
of ExitPolicy.

In your world maybe "government-owned addresses" are a bad thing. For me
and many other Tor users certainly not.

You're free to run an exit on a residential line, but I doubt that your
ISP will like the abuse complaints. You will likely get kicked off your
contract sooner or later. Also, a residential ISP will not forward abuse
complaints or even tell you about them, so there is no way for you to
explain yourself.
