Occasionally, clients will ask middle relays to connect to another server
as if it was a relay. We don't know why this happens: it could be a custom
Tor client bug. It's a pretty useless attack, because it's slow, and it
provides very little information about the server.

It's very unlikely you will get an abuse notice from activity like this.
