If people think onionland is some errorproof perfect
configuration zone, free from scam, free from agents, free from
discovery, free from all manner of trickery, buggery, debuggery,
bauchery, exploit, or the bore of ever September, and so on....
nope, it's been quite the opposite since day one.
That people are only recently studying finding and publishing

And of course such work is fine endeavour and report as well.
Have fun.
