My understanding of the protocol leads me to believe that this is benign

The latest information that I can give you is from June 22:


in particular


Let me know if there's something else you are interested in that could
be extracted from the bridge descriptors, and I can include it in the
next report.

Thank you.  This was very interesting.

I'd like to see some stats, or even some conjecture, as to the longevity of a bridge, and what it means for the bridge to be born, be used, and eventually be blocked.

I understand the mechanisms used to slowly feed bridge information to people who request them, but even that slowness can't keep them from eventually being discovered and blocked.

I would think there would be some kind of exponential falloff in utility of a bridge as it is extant for longer and longer periods of time. You might be able to analyze this by looking at the relationship between the number of times a bridge IP is given out vs. the bandwidth it generates and then provide some guidelines to bridge operators that would give them an idea as to when to move to a new IP, or when to expect their bridge to have gone stale.
