An "anti-virus" for the bad nodes that intentionally block and slow down the network?

It would be very useful for the relay workers to find somewhere a daily updated raw list (separated by comma) of the known bad nodes and network IPs that intentionally attack the TOR network by blocking it and killing the traffic by dark manoeuvres.

Since I put in my torrc a list of bad nodes found by chance, I have the feeling the things go faster. It's time for the TOR people to develop their own "anti-virus".

What's the point when AuthDirBadExit,AuthDirInvalid and AuthDirReject exists? This seems like it's asking for a partitioning attack amongst other shenanigans.

Come back with something that isn't "Replace DocTor/Exitmap/the Bwauths, with something that has yet to be written and is even more prone to abuse".
