- how computationally expensive is it to add new information - is it in any
  way feasible to 'remove' information (is it really a member
  of the Eternity class of systems). Since unaccessed info can disappear,
  I suspect it may not be.

- anonymous posting is possible, but can we verify the integrity of each
  message (what we are seeing is what was actually posted?).

- `Covering' mechanisms like PGP signatures bust the `anonymous'
  nature of the service since these signatures can be tracked via
  their vettors.

I think these are examined in the chap's Ph.d thesis; however, I'm am
yet to read it...
