Re: How to strictly exclude exit nodes?

I'm not certain, but I believe this message is indicating that the
exit node is *explicitly* requested for this route, and being used
despite that it would never be chosen for a normal route. That is, I
would guess this is using a .exit address (www.google.com.blabla.exit)
to force the exit path, and it allows that despite blabla being in
ExcludeExitNodes. The specific behavior of Exclude(Exit)Nodes is to
not use the specified nodes when creating any routes - it won't use
them by itself, but will if you force it to.

You should be safe from using blabla for an exit for normal traffic.
