The rsync discussion is interesting with ssh.
rsync -avz -e "ssh -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no  --progress

Rsync will maintain identical images and allows the deletion of files
It supports push and pull allowing someone or push messages then
at some "chron" time delete them.  The ssh connection port is agile
and responds to port knocking and source filtering with ease.

The point to point allows central management or in the context of bot-farms
allows near anonymous clean up, delivery or obfuscation.
Yes ftp and sftp allow the same... functionality as does a telnet
uucico, NFS, http, https, blog, nannie/security cameras and more.

The most difficult to contain are OS exploit based.  If we wish to
manage the global playing field OS flaws need to vanish as quickly
as is possible.  Flaws and exploits allows the participation via a million
sources and destinations to the point that clear text would never be
seen or archived for later analysis.
