Agreed. It's impossible to filter out every bad bit, and it will 
always hit innocent people. 
I had the police in my house for much less than running an exit node, 
searching my PC for illegal material, which they didn't find of 
course - at least enough suspicion was there, totally unreasonable 
for every knowledgeable person, for a judge to order this 
investigation. They could have taken my PC and other stuff.
I wonder what would happen if I would run an exit node... I don't want 
to take that risk. Well, I live in Germany, a country where the 
government is becoming paranoid and beginning to do exactly what 
George Orwell has foreseen almost 60 years ago.
I don't know where this will end, but I am currently very afraid of 
running an exit node, and won't do it. I give some resources as relay 
node, that's all I can afford to do.
I would like to run an exit node, by the way. There just needs to be 
some legal clarity on whether and how I could be held responsible for 
what is going on there. I would even be willing to rent a vserver 
just for that purpose. But I can't evaluate the risk properly.
