A todo item that came out of the 34c3 relay operators meetup: we should have a series of relay operators do blog posts (or just tor-relays posts) sharing happy stories. Right now the tiny minority of relay operators with sad stories is what everybody notices and thinks of, since they draw attention and since there aren't many counterexamples.

We will want to think through what to focus on in these more happy stories -- historically the sad ones have all sorts of gory details, and the happy ones are one or two sentences ("I've run these four huge exit relays for the past three years and I only got one phone call"). My first thought is to leave that choice to the relay operators who are writing them -- they clearly are in this for a good reason, and this is their chance to explain it to the world, and to argue that running an exit is worth the trouble.

We will also want to figure out some way to collect and keep them, so they don't just become old mailing lists posts or old blog posts lost in the wind. A trac page pointing to all of them? A twitter hashtag? Something else smart?
