My name is Michael and I'm currently studying the source code of Freenet.

I have found that the object reference for all PeerNode objects has the 
IP address of the peer associated with it. How is anonymity kept with 
the IP of the peer exposed? I have examined the log file and it seems 
the object reference of the peers are logged as they are added.

What I'm confused is since Freenet seek to promote freedom of speech in 
the presence of strict government control, if they decide to run a 
Freenet node and collect IP addresses in this manner, the consequences 
would be unthinkable....

I have tested this by adding another node of mine and my IP address 
appears as expected.

Can anyone explain to me why??
