[tor-relays] False exit abuse from server4you

Let's hope so, as Unmetered hosts a pretty significant amount of exit 

Several of my exits run there and I too received the abuse 
notifications. I've contacted Unmetered for clarification and will 
return to this thread as soon as I hear more.

The way unmetered has always handled abuse traffic is simple: customer 
gets 3 days to respond to the message, or the server gets temporarily 
disconnected. I don't think there's any human interaction with abuse 
reports on their side.
