[tor-relays] Search warrant and house search because of an exit in DE

Correct my exit normally goes via VPN running on the second IP, but this
week I have changed server to a new Linux VPS machine, I have not yet got
VPN to work without cutting off the branch I am sitting on.  Working at it,
along with problems making the second IP stick on reboot (Plesk on the VPS
is running a script deleting it, my provider is sorting).  So as a temporary
measure it is https proxy.   

TOR Linux could not read my old Windows TOR keys, so it is a new setup.  Is
this a known error?

Is what you call a "proxy service" actually a proxy service, or is it a VPN

Your exit accepts more than just http[s], so I doubt it's the former.

It is not "exonerated". At least not without you using some form of
independant notary service.
