This is a followup to comments in XeroBank's post (#666 in the Anyone tried XeroBank (formerly Torrify) thread) about his proclaimed ability to siphon up a large (80-100%) proportion of a Tor node's advertised bandwidth. Since it is getting off-topic to the rest of the discussion in that thread, I have opened this one for future discussion. You stated an assumption (use of Tor's traffic-limiting mechanism) which I've qualified (I use other software to block access to specific URLs). It shouldn't have any impact but full disclosure is a good thing. Since we are extremely unlikely to meet face-to-face, I'd suggest something else. If you manage to siphon my node's bandwidth to the extent agreed (I'd suggest setting a level of 80% of 250KB/s - 200KB/s average - for a 10MB download) then I change my forum avatar to one of your choice for a month (subject to forum rules of course). Otherwise, you get to look like a yellow-skinned leering baldy with a big nose for a month. Assuming these terms are acceptable, I'd suggest you PM me with your preferred time and contact method for running this test. Since my node isn't online all the time (and my router has been a little pernickety in the past) it may be best to arrange phone contact while doing the test.
