    8181 * [http://www.m5hosting.com/ M5 Hosting] does not explicitly forbid Tor in their AUP, but after operating an exit node for 3 weeks and receiving three DMCA complaints, their abuse department communicated, "Whereas Tor exit nodes facilitate unaccountable actions by anonymous users and those actions regularly expose [M5] to undue risk as well as oversight costs and unknowable legal expenses, Tor exit nodes will not be permitted on M5's network" because "just responding to the abuse complaints costs [them] money and it costs money to [their] upstream providers and increase[s] [their] risks of incurring legal defense expenses" and ordered the Tor exit node to be shut down.
    8282 * [http://www.fdcservers.net FDCservers] allows Tor, and customers to react to abuse within 24 hours before taking further steps. Be cautious if operating an exit node, for the boilerplate abuse responses are "not acceptable" per their Network Security Administrator.  He sited the AUP/TOS and  stated I have "the full responsibility for the content hosted and passing through the server.  So if you cannot track or take actions against reported abuse issues you should terminate or restrict specific service" (which was a single exploitable php script probe).
     83* [http://dreamhost.com] Abuse department says Tor violates AUP and should not be run. Also said they had had TOR nodes run before on VPSes and it had caused performance degradation for other VPSes. 6/27/2011
