[tor-talk] Question about something said about Tor in the Der Spiegel data dump

First, let me say I'm sorry if this is posted twice. My mail client gave
me an error and, since I still haven't seen it hit either list, I'm
sending it again. My apologies if this is a duplicate.
So I'm looking through the Der Spiegel data dump and noticed the
following statement on document 35543:
"The client must not be running a Tor router of their own..."
That made me thing of a few questions but I'm specifically wondering
what they mean here.
1. Do they mean that it is confusing to them if I am connecting to the
Tor network from a computer that also runs a relay but I do not have my
client configured to use my relay
2. Do they mean that it is confusing to them if I am connecting to the
Tor network through a relay running on my own machine?
Perhaps I'm not even asking this question correctly as it 'feels' like
the wrong way. But I'm curious. What are your thoughts?
