after running a relay for about a month, donating fairly limited
bandwidth to the cause, i have written an entry on this blog
http://luser.baywords.com. yes, another blog about running a tor relay,
the reason for running a relay was to gain an insight into what tor is
being used for, which is pretty hard going considering the tor design,
in order to make an informed decision regarding the morality of
supporting such a system.
another reason is to provide a list of POP accounts (pop server IP and
username, no password is captured) being accessed via tor, just in case
any admins/users of these servers/accounts find it odd that they are
being accessed over tor.
is there a case for maintaining a central repository of ip/username
pairs from certain protocols (pop3, imap, ftp, whatever) emanating from
exit nodes as a reference for admins in the case that access via tor to
these accounts is prohibited/not advised.
i hope this won't be seen to be against the spirit of supporting such a
project; I just find tor and its uses quite intriguing. i'll happily
withdraw this support if the majority believe this to be detrimental to
