    9191 Reacting to performance changes as a "bad idea":
    92    A bold and absolute statement not fully supported by the paper. Clearly there are steps we can take to mitigate the attack, especially by detecting and reacting to the DDoS and other items discussed at the end of Section 6. Also, the network is still very small. We aren't making absolute claims about our anonymity especially when the whole network is 2000 - 3000 routers. Yes we still have work to do to ensure anonymity while doing performance-based peer selection and there are tradeoffs involved. But don't write it off as a "bad idea".

Yes we still have work to do to ensure anonymity while doing performance-based peer selection and there are tradeoffs involved. But don't write it off as a "bad idea". A more nuanced statement would be that anonymity vs. performance is a fundamental tradeoff, and that the speed of reaction to a peer's perceived performance change affects that tradeoff, and that perhaps i2p's reaction time is too fast for the anonymity that its users expect, and should be adjusted.
