It is only a catch for the Spanish police.

@fitheach @gemlog "Tsunami Democràtic", "requieres geolocation", "not free software". "Newcomers receive 10 invites to avoid police control" as if a cop who joins wouldn't get 10 invites and spoof coordinates.

Yeah, that's right, but the article also suggests that individual users are limited to knowing what happens within a "cell". Plus, there is also a suggestion that certain "superusers" have oversight of all cells.

Whether any of this is true, I don't know.
