# objectHashHolder is a timer-driven thread. One objectHashHolder thread is used
# by each sendDataThread. It uses it whenever a sendDataThread needs to
# advertise an object to peers. Instead of sending it out immediately, it must
# wait a random number of seconds for each connection so that different peers
# get different objects at different times. Thus an attacker who is
# connecting to many network nodes who receives a message first from Alice
# cannot be sure if Alice is the node who originated the message.
