The IP addresses of all senders 'must' be echoed to all receivers. If not,
then the server 'reflector' simply acts as a tool for dissemination of video
from an unknown source.
In this case it is the reflector operator that is to blame when something
obscene or bad goes through. CuSeeMe already has the capability to identify
the senders, but what about the lurkers??? If you are not going to have
some method of identifying the lurker address, then whats the point of even
showing the lurkers in the first place. There is no reason to echo the
lurkers to the client CuSeeMe tool. That would make things ever so slightly
faster. If the lurkers are just going to put up fake or junk preference
information anyway, I see no reason to see the lurkers at all, or even have
the CuSeeMe tool receive the lurker information from the refelctor.

My point? If you are going to show the lurkers, you might as well show
their real addresses.
