Can you elaborate the difference between:
   - withdraw the information that you can't prove the player could have obtained

and

   - withdraw the information that you are absolutely sure player could
     not have, ask the players to use common sense for all the rest

I suspect that it has to do the the keyword "prove".

I'd also be curious how to implement/police this without being draconian.
Can you?
