I got a nice letter back saying that if I were to receive repeated notices, then they would research what the right course of action is. They said they wouldn't cut me off without talking to me first. That said, I haven't run a Tor exit node since, as much because I need my bandwidth for work as because I don't want to fight that battle right now.

That's crazy talk.  Just tell them that you need to run a Tor exit
node for intercepting usernames and passwords for sensitive websites.
I'm sure they'll understand.  If they don't, I have a nice form letter
explaining it.  If you like, I can email it to them (from *you*).  Or,
I can upload it directly to your server.  Just let me know ;)
