This is it, a timing and connection pairing thing. If you come in direct from
your base to clearnet 22, your outbound line will be extremely keystroke
responsive to your login line. Same goes for console login, plus console
has no input line.
A casual observer might be fooled by you running a shell server for people,
and you could login via exit with that. Without clearnet access, an admin
HS could be run, your output line would be timeable at twice the
avg lag and jitter that an exit input would.
Something like that, sketch it on paper.
