If your Exit Node is not going to connect to a given website, it's fine, but the Tor Client have to know it, in order to automatically choose another Exit to reach the destination.

May be I was lucky but apart from 1 copyright infrigement (French "Hadopi" the second week), I never had any problem, and in such case the situation is not very comlicated to handle (you simply explain).
