Yes, that thought comes to mind quite a bit these days, so what we're
seeing is the training of the populace to to f#ck one another over,
through the abuse of power.

A non-centralized system can be used in a similar way, but only
localised, and through your local authorities, whoever -they- are.

Which leads to the though, how to identify snitches in a
decentralized p2p "anonymous but not really anonymous" comms

Well, CPs already know the answer, and the easy way to do that is
automate it - introduce slight variations in the messages you send
out, per-contact.

Any non-munged report that comes back "to haunt me" identifies the
original recipient, any munged report was literally not sent by me
and is literally, and legally (and morally) a vicious and slanderous
defamation against me which must be denounced in the most black and
white terms imaginable.

Let us teach the "petty Nazis" a lesson already!
