Should we stop setting AuthDirBadExitCC?
Sebastian points out that the original reasoning for #4923 (moved), which is that Vidalia users in Iran and Syria were clicking "make me a relay" without really understanding the implications, are long past.
I looked over #4923 (moved) for hints about our previous mental state, and I found two points worth reading and thinking about:
"if we learned that a given relay was logging all traffic that its users generate, and putting those logs up on its website, would we badexit that relay?" and "badexit is a blunt instrument and this makes us look like tools of the US government's bullshit and ill thought out internet policy talking points."
In summary, I am now thinking that I've run out of good reasons to argue for keeping the
AuthDirBadExitCC sy,ir line in my torrc file.
What do other badexit-voting dir auth operators think?
