Just for the record, this is exactly why I don't recommend it from my
exerience. I lost access to my bank's website (plus some other sites)
for a while because I did this. It's must less risky running a non-exit
than running an exit, but there may be unintended side effects that make
the experience less fun overall for the operator.
