Hello fellow operators of tor relays out there! :)

I'd like to introduce my new relay, it's called keepyourprivacy and hosted in 
the Netherlands, at a provider which is known for high uptime and great network 
connectivity. Because it isn't very cheap, it's not very common used for tor 
relays, so i think it's a good choice for a better network diversity. :) Sure, 
i liked the idea of running a cheap relay at Kimsufi or something, but there 
are so many of this relays out there, which isn't good for the basic idea of 
Tor.

It's running on a dedicated server with an dedicated 100 mbit/s full-duplex 
uplink, which is only used for Tor. So over 60 TB can be pushed each month. In 
these days Tor needs more help than ever, because VPN bans becoming more and 
more common - look at China or Russia for example.

I'm also playing with the idea to change this relay to an exit node, but i'm a 
little bit worried about possible legal consequences. I would run it with an 
reduced policy however, but there is still the risk, that someone is doing 
fraud - or even worse - transmit child pornography over it. And that's nothing 
i'd like to be involved with it. But i know that it would help the Tor network 
even more.

But for now, i think the middle relay with high uptime, capacity and with a not 
so common provider like OVH or online.net will still help the community to 
improve the connectivity.

Let me know your thoughts! :)
