[cut for clarity]
I felt warm while agreeing with you there :D
That's why i have setup privoxy now.
But i still have a problem with DNS (still on-topic :P).
My relay needs a public accessible "non-poluted" DNS-server, so it won't get flagged as bad-exit.
Hmmm would it help to reject port 53 as exit in this case?
