Just like OTR where you use a public IRC channel/service to carry
encrypted exchange, there's no reason you shouldn't do the same
for other forms of cleardata within your various peer groups as you
define them. Depriving facebook of harvesting would be a privacy win.
Don't expect them to be too happy when you thus turn them into your
free storage provider at their expense (loss of datamining revenue).
