Re: Excludenodes not considered?

Oh lala. The tor developers should fix this issue. This is a extremly

ExcludeNodes CN,HK, but are connected to fake servers hosted by the
"torture governemnt" that uses a manipulated country identifier to hunt
enemies. This could be a question of beeing imprisoned or not for those
