[tor-relays] I.P. being Blocked?

I checked the lists; all my ipv4 relays are there. At the same time, I
haven't noticed any issues with network access from any of the addresses,
in 5+ years of observations. Doesn't mean that nothing is blocked, just
that ppl on my network never attempt to go to places behind the lists.

Wondering if someone could be held liable for blocking public access to
government resources with no good reason. What happens if you decide to
prevent people from accessing an BM SS office, for example?
