now i am in a similar situation with a site that uses cloudflare, and
thus currently has 6 different IP addresses according to simple linux

access to the site (or other sites using cloudflare or other similar
services) in my exit policy?  i've basically been given an ultimatum to
stop running my exit node while accessing the site or be banned from the
