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.
