Currently, if the origin of the IP address of a particular node is unknown, either due to messed-up GeoIP database, or due to tor having to rely on an outdated copy, there is no way to specify these nodes and include them in various *Nodes torrc options.

By adding something like the above option (or other similar syntax) this can be achieved.

Are you sure that {??} doesn't work? It's supposed to work.

See also #7706

Oh, that is exactly what I wanted! Is this documented anywhere?

If not, *please* document this very important feature (I was aware of the A? country issue simply because it appeared in one of the changelogs and was discussed on the tor mailing list as well), otherwise I am sure there would be many other stragglers, like myself, asking for this.

Thanks Nick, I added this in my ExcludeNodes list and hopefully it will do the job.

I've added a note to the manpage on the feature7706 branch. I'm going to call this a duplicate of #7706 now.
