Perhaps it would be better to outright ban these relays with no warning? I'm sure that annoying those donating multiple relays will absolutely be encouraged to continue doing so.
(Or to be less sarcastic: I don't operate any tor relays at this time, but I do run public mirrors and a few other goodies and I'm eternally grateful to those that bother to notify me when there is a problem of any sort, especially configuration related -- I can't speak for tor relay operators, but I'm not sure that I'm seeing anything even in the same ballpark as harassment here)
