Description

Migrated from old trac:

"[Copied from arma's email]

Right now the 'Exit Policies' tab is greyed out for bridge relays. Can we leave the tab working, but unclick all the exit policy options and grey them out? That will make it clearer to users that their exit policy will be 'no'."

I'm re-reading this, and I don't understand how this changes things.

May be, if this part needs to be explicit, add text saying "By being a bridge you'll be helping users access the Tor network, but they won't be able to use it to access the actual content. For this you'll need to setup a relay with the proper exit policies".

The point is to let users see in the Vidalia settings window that their Tor bridge will not allow exiting, so that they won't worry that it is acting as an exit node.

Well, yes, I understand that part. What I don't understand yet is how doing what this ticket suggests will improve this idea.

Given that this is a really easy fix based on the work in my branch chiiph/bug2644_share, I think we can see how this impacts the users.
