The config directive ChooseEntryExit should not be confused with

No you do not need to exclude them because your client will not use
nodes with the BadExit flag as an exit node anyway. The torstatus
website does not flag them, it just shows you that they have this flag
because the DirectoryAuthorities flagged these nodes as badexits.

To unsubscribe, send an e-mail to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx with
