Was it an exit relay?

(I don't see it in my list of relays, so I guess it has been offline
for quite a while now?)

https://www.torproject.org/faq-abuse#TypicalAbuses provides a bit of

I doubt that the Scroogle thread is related to this. It's probably just
some jerk who also happens to own a small botnet.
