'Graduated Access' is where a service applies certain heuristics
in order to qualify the validity of an account. Such may include
things like, logins over time, messages sent, feedback [from others
to helpdesk] received, length of time and activity since account origination,
'likes', p2p user based ratings, etc. Explicitly, and not merely, whether or
not they exit from a tor/i2p/etc node or not (unfortunately the case today).
As that would be arbitrarily prejudiced against certain 'real' peoples who
care to preserve various sensitive aspects, for whatever personal or
philosophical beliefs or reasons that are valid to them.
