RE: question

Just out of curiousity, how does being only an exit
server help this?

Is it because exit things are plain text and middleman
things are encrypted?

I am fairly certain it has nothing to do with the
ports used, right?  Because, unless I misunderstand
the TOR system (which is indeed quite likely) TOR
servers who are middleman are requested to keep open
all exit ports, to be able to contact other TOR
servers on those ports...
