Re: DNS block in place at (molly)

Actually, I can't speak for all Tor users, but I would think a fair
number of them would object to any sort of blocking on the exit node,
even porn. If nothing else, for the reason that you have no idea how
slashdot, fark, and chase got in there (which is quite common with
blacklists.. as we all know from dealing with SORBS, they simply Do
Not Work).

Is there any way to set it such that this dns block does not apply to
your Tor exit traffic?

Or, alternatively (to everyone else on the list), is there a config
option that I can use to exclude molly as an exit node? I think
ExcludeNodes is a bit harsh in this case, cause the dns filter
obviously doesn't apply if I'm using him as a middle-man node.

Otherwise, I would ask that molly not be listed as an exit node at
