Er, maybe I'm confused, but what exactly does a trust metric have to do with
mud development?

You still have to assume the client is in the hands of the enemy, don't you?

I can easily see how something like this might apply to, say, a network
infrastructure, but I fail to understand how it might be helpful in
"defining online communities, reliably excluding spammers, trolls, and other
common annoyances."

Anybody care to enlighten me?
