Unless someone has a comprehensive program to review exit node blocks over time, it makes sense to set a not-too-distant expiration time.
Dragons flight (talk) , 8 January 2008 (UTC) The vast majority of Tor nodes are no longer Tor nodes after just a few days. The proportion which remain Tor nodes for more than a year is absolutely minimal.
Keep in mind though that you can't go faster than the maximum speed of your Internet connection or that of the server the site is hosted on.
If that is already maxed out, for instance by a download in the background, you may need to temporarily pause those activities to access the sites you are interested in.
If it were run weekly and dynamic IPs were soft blocked, the potential for collateral damage is limited.

-- zzuuzz Agree here, "Once a tor, always a tor" is not correct.This can be advertisement, widgets that load information from other websites, or a photo gallery that is displayed on every page of the website.The following browser tools can improve the loading time in various ways if that is the case.Lets take a look at some of the options that you have to speed up access to a website that you want to load in your browser.Sometimes, a website loads slowly because of items that it loads that are not really relevant to the actual content that you want to access.We can not ignore the above comments regarding how long a node is really a node.
