#24789 closed defect (wontfix)

Consider changing the fallback process to opt-out

If we did this, we could rebuild the list by running a script, and occasionally collect opt-outs and add them to the blacklist.

I don't think this would worry anyone too much.

I am strongly discouraging this. Distributing the IP address in source code can get them flagged by some "security" software as C&C server (happened to my dirauth, caused a bunch of trouble but people knew to talk to me). We tell non-exits they basically don't have to worry about running a relay and I think that's no longer true with an opt-out process.

Thanks for this feedback, it looks like we will need to continue to find someone to run this process in future.
