I cried a little inside when I read, "We have asked our provider to give
us a way of differentiating Tor exit nodes from non-exit relays, to
allow us to block exit nodes only."


Did you have trouble reaching www.bbc.co.uk as well as iPlayer? That
would be strange. I haven't seen them block Tor relays & exits simply
getting to www.bbc.co.uk.
