sorry, i'm saying it excludes the exit node and the other middle nodes first in the same path

and then exclude itself if it's a or. and randomly choose a node in the running routers list which contains all those routers only if it's now running and valid and you think it's reliable enough.
so actually i don't see there's some policy to exlude those exit nodes

If you run as an exit node, it's my understanding that you also act as a
middleman node. Would it be possible, and would it be a good idea, to
add an option such that you only act as an exit node?

It seems a bit of a waste to use potential exit bandwidth as middleman
relaying bandwidth when exit bandwdith is more scarce.
