I have, now and then, run exits from home. In each case, a week or so after, I'd get a letter from my ISP about a copyright violation (someone downloaded a pirated movie or music). I'm glad it was just that and not cops blowing in on a pedophile investigation for downloads of child porn.  That is the danger of at home exits.

You don't run exit nodes from home unless you want to risk law
enforcement breaking down your door at 3:00 AM and subsequently
confiscating every computer/phone/camera/storage device you own... just
