@Ibpointless:
I must respectfully disagree with your findings that oxygen is a bad thing. I am coming from from the experience of galvanic cells, so if you disagree with me, that is quite OK.
From the site:
Chem1 Electrochemistry: Electrochemical corrosion

Pitting corrosion
Most metals are covered with a thin oxide film which inhibits anodic dissolution. When corrosion does occur, it sometimes hollows out a narrow hole or pit in the metal. The bottoms of these pits tend to be deprived of oxygen, thus promoting further growth of the pit into the metal.
