     Now that you've published your tor bridge's IP address on this list--
assuming the one you've shown us is accurate, rather than an appropriate
substitution for purposes of sending it to this list--you ought to consider
contacting your host company in the U.S. to get them to change the IP address
and restart tor using the new IP address.  The IP address shown above, if
correct, will probably be useless anywhere that access via bridges is needed.
