[tor-talk] Tor exit node



 I'd like to ask you guys how I can set up a Tor exit node. I figure I want to help make a difference in the best way I can for internet freedom, but the guide on the Tor wiki isn't very helpful. If you can provide links or detailed explanation (just 're:' me). Funnily enough I know how to set up a Tor server, but not a Tor exit node.
Thanks for the assistance to anyone who helps me. I figure people in here might be more useful than 50 article writers on websites trying to over complicate the process to earn their paycheck.
