Re: Problems with irc because of tor?

I run a relay server only.  Never an exit (at least, not for about a year)

I keep seeing the " banned" message and wonder where this address is 
coming from to be mispresented to any outside server or computer.  Why is my 
REAL IP address be sidestepped and my localhost overriding it?  I am wondering 
if there is a tor configuration setting I am missing to prevent tor from 
"presenting" as my address.
