Does Tor identify each node by their nickname? or are nicknames of tor nodes are unique (cannot be duplicate)? but when you see, you will find many tor nodes with the same nickname "unnamed". I am puzzled that how to distinguish these nodes? If I add "ExcludeNodes unnamed" to my torrc, which node on earth would be excluded ???
