This is one of the main problems with a system like this. It would be very
hard to prove that a pseudonym isn't a fed. Rather than restricting
communication to just a few people, everyone should be able to participate and
use a nym. This would make arrests very difficult. I think it is inevitable
that the communications would eventually be leaked to a TLA. You might want
to look for information on PGPdomo. This does just about everything you've
PGP encrypted mail prefered.
