This was reported yesterday 01.01.2015 in IRC too, for this relay:


The same it was pushing good amounts of traffic and the consensus
weight dropped to 20 with no modifications made to the Tor config file
or anything. You are the 3rd person who reports this, seams like worth
investigating further.

I can see both of them are exits, but doubt this has anything to do
with it.

Could it be a measurement problem from the bandwidth authorities? Why
would it happen only to very few relays in this case?
