"Web of Trust" is problematic for those who chose pseudonymity. Over the
years, I've come to trust several pseudonyms based on interactions via
discussion forums and email, signed documents and software, apparent
integrity, and so on. Nobody except me knows mirimir's true name, but
everyone can judge me by what I've said and done.

Purists want DNA swaps these days, I guess ;)
