I can‘t talk about the source, but there are indeed more and more script
kiddies out there who use Tor or VPNs just to test around. They hook up Linux
Kali and thinking they are becoming the next big hacker. I‘ve read from another
provider which supports tor exit, that they only accept exits if mail, irc and
ssh ports are blocked, because they are the biggest vectors for abuse messages.
So i guess you are not alone...
