I agree with you.
My point in presenting the "SocialWeb Credibility" example was to define an
extreme case which was unlikely to be well addressed by the proposal --
unless there was some detail I hadn't understood.

 But, given that we now have some idea of the extremes, the interesting
questions remain, including:

   - At what point, between 1 list member and 10 million list members, is
   it no longer reasonable to use a list based approach?
   - What do we do about the extreme case?
