"The point" of what? -- and for the record, GMail Web interface uses HTTPS
(port 443), not 80.

If you don't want to run a 80/443 exit node, then consider allowing a number
of different ports except those, AFAIK exits are scarce enough that any port
that is used by people for anything that you can allow, will get used.

However if you run an Exit node without fully understanding legal and other
implications (and you seem to do just that), then by all means please don't :)

With respect,
