You cannot black-list someone who is anonymous.
Also, Edward Snowden is a griefer -- just ask Obama whether he hasn't caused
him grief. So how to do distinguish the good griefers from the bad ones?

How about not looking then? As others already said, looking at exit node
traffic is probably illegal and certainly immoral. If you don't want grief,
at least just don't cause any yourself.
