Description

I went to report a bad exit today and I couldn't work out how.
I looked on the contacts page, and it wasn't obvious.

Can we make it easier to find, or would that involve listing everything?

There is a blog post and wiki entry
https://blog.torproject.org/blog/how-report-bad-relays
https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/ReportingBadRelays

Maybe linking them from the contact page would be overkill.

bad-relays actually used to be listed on the contact page.

And it resulted in a shocking number of naive users trying to use it for tech support.

So we removed it.

The real answer is to provide good tech support to millions of naive users.

In the mean time, hiding from the users is a not-terrible distant second place option.

I wondered if it was something like that. Thanks!
