I was looking through http://torstatus.blutmagie.de and I find it most interesting that so many exit nodes are located at Absecon, New Jersey. 

These are:

3VXRyxz67OeRoqHn - li231-44.members.linode.com -
agnodicelabnet1 - tor-exit-2.lab.net -
colagioia - tor.colagioia.net -
gribule - gribule.nick.on.net -
ErecTor - li90-241.members.linode.com -
hypatialabnet1 - tor-exit-1.lab.net -
mentor - janus.misfeature.net -
kznx - tor.johnboehr.net -
SpecTor - li110-171.members.linode.com -
PIis3141592 - tor-proxy.l.egofuzzer.net -

Accoring to Wikipedia Absecon has a population of under 10,000 people.


Does anyone know why there is such a concentration of nodes in this one small place?
