From some googling I did the Nickname for the tor.unixgu.ru node seems
to be/have been torxunixguxru I used that in my ExcludeNodes. After
seeing your post I did some double checking and the IP addys match what
you posted here.

I would also like to thanks Michael Holstein for bringing this point up
(back up?).

  Although I strongly Disagree with uinxgu.ru's actions. There does seem
to be a need to educate users to the limitations of Tor. I look around
after my earlier post (Sorry, Nick, et al  I really didn't mean to fuel
that. I was genuinely trying to be helpful.) and found that there is
already a very nice write up in the Tor Wiki on the lines of "can and
can't do". I do think there is a need for a more condensed version with
a link or links to the nice write up on the Wiki. The condensed version
being very to the point. i.e. Tor will not protect e-mail,telnet,etc
passwords, Tor wont make you anonymous if you use it to log into your
(pre-existing) Yahoo account, etc. 

  Many home users I help have only the most limited concept of
computer/Internet security issues and sadly no patience for reading
anything the seems even remotely technical. I'm still willing to take a
stab at writing it as long as the Dev's will proof read if and make sure
I don't make any embarrassing misstatements. 

  I think the hardest part will be explaining clearly what Tor CAN do in
a non technical way. 

Take Care
