     Yes.  But it should never inject such a page into the returning
data stream.  Valid exits should never tamper with either the outbound
data or the returning data.

     Quite possibly, but irrelevant to getting a BadExit flag from
the authorities.

     That also may be a good idea, but for now, it needs to get a BadExit
flag from the authorities.  If and when the spacecowboy operator fixes it,
notifies the authorities that it has been fixed, and the authorities test
and approve its operation as an exit, they can remove the flag.
     In the meantime, I've added it to my ExcludeExitNodes list until I
see a BadExit flag on it in my directory and consensus files.
