[tor-talk] I don't understand two things about the node "freja".

I have questions about the Tor node ?freja?.

First, according to https://torstatus.rueckgr.at/, the node is at which is in Italy. Yet WHOIS says the addresses are in Pune, India. The last IP from a
?traceroute? is and is in ?IT?
(Italy) which suggests that https://torstatus.rueckgr.at/ is correct.

Why would WHOIS inaccurately (I think) say the IP is in India?

Second, according to https://torstatus.rueckgr.at/, ?freja? is not an exit
node. But if you use...

StrictNodes 1
ExitNodes freja

...then TBB will load the purple introductory screen ?Explore. Privately.?
(I tried with other non-exit nodes and TBB typically gets stuck on
?Requesting Relay Information? and never loads the purple screen).

However, then ?freja? will not load any pages.

So if it?s not an exit node, why does the introductory screen load?
