Sorry to hear about the loss of your job.
 I think the OP has not considered that Webcrawler may be blocking some
 Tor exits after experiencing abuse - the heaviest used exits would be
 the ones likely to show up.
Privoxy's error messages can't be relied on IMO. It would be useful if
tor-resolve had a 'choose exit' option.
