Some f:ing paedophile is responsible for  loosing all my computers and
scaring my better half. Thanks a lot.

If theres going to be some directory controlled exit-policies then count
me in (if I'm going to ever run an exit-node anymore).

As for many things one can use Tor for good or for bad but as long as
running an exit node means getting busted by some rude cops I'm not
going to run one anymore (maybe?).

Btw, I changed my other node to middle-man only =(.
