Well it is perhaps possible to avoid that to you, by this user
completely sequestering the node from you operator access,
other than to allow you operator payment to hosting account.
User must still then investigate the HW and SW, which can
assure only themselfs, not similarly trustfully out to the rest
of the users, since as such this user is then effectively operator.
So it is back to, for any explicit trust upon a node, all three
must be continually investigated... operator, HW, SW.
Else you rely on theories of goodwill and random chance.

Unfortunately or not, that appears to be viewed as sufficient,
as even modest proposals of establishing optional Web of Trust
among operators, and community analysis of meta parameters
of nodes into optionally subscribable lists of nodes to use...
have not been taken up and tried as projects yet.
