Let's not get too silly here: disk space is cheap. The aforementioned
bb.com cypherpunks newsgroup takes up 7 megs right now, since July 16,
and that's not even compressed (one of these days, I'll take care of
that). That's $5 at current disk prices. I'm certainly willing to
shell out $2.50/month to keep all of cypherpunks around: I frequently
grep for references.
No, it's bandwidth of a gazillion cypherpunks getting the material
that worries me... but we'll live with it.
