Abuse ticket


Im running Tor on VPS and I have some problems with abusive Tor traffic. Firstly, I had problem with DMCA and BitTorrents, so I close non-HTTP(s) ports and everything was OK for few months. Now, some dumbass wrote abusive message to some web forum, which was reported to police. They located my server as source. Last message from VPS admin is:

Hello Marek

While running a Tor node is not against our TOS, allowing traffic to pass through your servers that results in our IP space being banned certainly is.

This is your first abuse ticket, so we will set it to auto-close in 48 hours.  If we do receive additional complaints we will need to ask you to remove Tor from your Linode.


I dont want to close HTTP ports 8-), but next report of abusive traffic will lead to shutting down Tor or whole VPS :-(. So is there any "best practice", what I should do now? DMCA response is probably not fitting to this issue...
