I agree too with Sebastian, i was running a Exit Relay at home a couple
years before i got some problems with autority but i has stoped to be
exit and only a "non-exit" relay and from that i never had new
problems.... I have 100 Mbits with no limit with the Traffic and it
will be sad to not givin my bandwitch capacity for the network.. So
ican offer a clean and great relay for Tor :-)  

Best Regards
