Reality is a thing of nuance: although the risks of running a middle 
relay from home are for more limited compared to running an exit relay 
from home, there are some things that should be taken into account.

Most notably: the IP-address from your home connection will be listed in 
one or more block lists, based on the criteria that these lists list all 
none Tor relays. This may be a problem when site owners decided to deny 
traffic from IP-addresses that are running a Tor relay. As a result of 
that, if you run a middle relay from home, you may have difficulties 
reaching some sites.
