Title: What is the black hole information paradox?

Abstract: Much thought has been devoted to solving the black hole information problem.
I'll argue that almost none of it has been asking the right question, and 
will explain how (what I believe is) the right question is inextricably 
tied up with the implications of diffeomorphism symmetry for the nature 
of states and observables in quantum gravity. Moreover, I'll argue that 
the paradox isn't really about black holes.
