The advertised bw should not really matter when we have bwauths
providing measurements, no?

So lets have a look at what measurements they provided here.

Example: consensus 2015-12-10 14:00:00 [1]

relay PhantomTrain6 had a consensus weigh of: 2150000

(that implies that the median of bwauth measurements is 2150000 or

longclaw measured: 2150000
maatuska measured: 1280000
moria1 measured:   2150000
gabelmoo no measurment
Faravahar no measurement

tor's definition of the median of 1280000 2150000 2150000
is: 2150000 (correct)

so the actual question is:

Why do bwauth come to such measurement results?
