    Hello,
    Recently torbrowser is allowing to connect to what it was previously blocked IPs/countries listed in the torrc file.
    this is the torrc file used:
    # This file was generated by Tor; if you edit it, comments will not be preserved
    # The old torrc file was renamed to torrc.orig.1 or similar, and Tor will ignore it

    DataDirectory I:\Tor Browser\torbrowser-install-7.0.6\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor
    GeoIPFile I:\Tor Browser\torbrowser-install-7.0.6\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\geoip
    GeoIPv6File I:\Tor Browser\torbrowser-install-7.0.6\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor\geoip6

    #FOR EXAMPLE WHILE TRYING TO BLOCK THIS COUNTRY, OR LISTS OF COUNTRIES TOO:
    # ExcludeNodes {US},{us},{??}

    ExcludeExitNodes {US},{??}

    StrictNodes 1

    Since a few weeks back I keep getting connections from any "blocked" country.
    What can I try to prevent the exit nodes from being used for any country listed in the torrc or any other methods for that matter?
