The problem is that my ISP called me that some botnet had been

investigating some DDOS or something like that. I think that they
thought that my server is cracked.

I had the same problem last week with my ISP. Also, botnet issues. I am blocking IRC for now in my exitpolicy, to see if this solves the problem

I changed my exit nodes policy, now I only allow traffic to http(s),
imap(s) and pop(s) =(.

If blocking IRC using Bill's example doesnt solve the issue, I'm tempted to go that way as well. Offcourse, I would rather have an exit policy that is as wide as possible, but I would also prefer not to be kicked off the internet by my ISP :)
