    Tough question. I've wondered about it myself. The answer that occurs
    to me lies in the search system. It could be that search returns all
    with some earmarked as "forgotten". (Probably at the end of the list,
    not necessarily.)

    On the other hand, the stuff available via browsing would be stuff that
    least one person has seen fit to view in the last year. (A link would
    qualify as "viewed", at all times. So maybe entire graphs would become
    invisible, if none of the parts had been accessed??)

    Making stuff like that available via search works, I think, because I
    probably never find it without doing a search anyway.

    And anything that had been "promoted" would probably be invulnerable
    to the disappearance/invisibility criteria, absent "kryptonite".
    material would have been promoted to superperson status, which would
    require the kryptonite privilege to retire it.)

    Them's off the head thoughts, at any rate.
