Re: reconsidering default exit policy

Why not include a list of possible abuses with the Tor documentation?
The list could be organized on a per port basis, detailing what
complaints you might receive if a specific port is left open in the
exit policy.

For example:
Port 80 (HTTP)   Administrators running routers with port 80 open have
received abuse reports regarding Google Groups.
