Well, that's why my exit nodes was, until recently, opened only to
HTTP/HTTPS… Now I've pushed a more opened policy but got abuse mails
from my hosting service the next hours… until I locked down SSH port.

People using Tor for "bad things" just don't realize how they fuck up
the whole thing. Not even mentioning "weird contents", just the script
kiddies running metasploit/other through Tor.

Hopefully I'll be able to keep my exit up with the current configuration…
