Re: Is switching IP addresses regularly beneficial as exit node?

	It won't work - all you will do is turn it into an arms race
of changing your IP one step ahead of them blacklisting your IP.  If
someone wants to block it, they're going to block it....intrinsic to
the system is the fact that everyone knows all exit nodes - you need
to in order to build circuits, so all someone needs to do is make an
auto-fetcher to get the list and populate the blacklist off of it.
	Worse, they may just get fed up and block your whole provider
network or a block of it.  Really, this isn't going to be productive.
