Hey, I completely agree. Ask Don -- this has been an issue I've harped
on with the Freenet people before.

I was just thinking that it would be cool to do a p2p system based on
SMTP, GnuPG, and reasonably good stego. You could lift the routing
model straight out of Freenet, but instead of making TCP connections,
send mail that says, "Bob, how about a game of golf? -Fred" to
innocent-sounding addresses like "bobjohnson@tyrell.com".

Messages that aren't GPG'd and stego'd, or aren't from a known trusted
partner, go silently to the shitcan.

I dunno, seems like a good idea to me.
