Description

On the Sharing tab of the settings window, when "Relay traffic for the Tor network" is selected, a prominent warning should be displayed that your IP address will be banned from half of the internet. I can't use Wikipedia. I can't use IRC. Who knows what other services I have unwittingly lost access to, due to what I thought was a worthy cause.

chiiph, here's what I reference from the arm wizard for exits to keep users from being caught off guard by this:

If we move it to a tpo site then maybe both controllers should reference something like it.

See also #2644 which has been implemented in Vidalia 0.3.0 and should help.
