multiple relays

sorry for getting back to it a little late!

well ...

considering that MyFamily is perfectly fine, what about those using *only*
PGP key fingerprints as ContactInfo? valid keys, publicly available (with
working email address, and personal info from the admin).

will these relays be removed from the network, or tagged as "bad" ones?

The main motivation for this change have been suspicious tor relays that
bad-relays@ ML
decided to remove but had no way direct way to contact and so was forced
to make hard decisions.

With these clear statements bad-relays@ ML group can handle problematic
