"Because information about the matter is lost forever, this conflicts with the laws of quantum mechanics, which state that information can never disappear from the universe."

Holey moley... Where in the heck did this guy study astrophysics? He needs to get a refund on his education. The matter isn't lost. It still exists in the universe. It is simply sucked down to the bottom of a gravity well (black hole) and in fact creates that very same gravity well. If there was no matter tucked away inside of a black hole, it wouldn't have such a strong gravity well.

Ummm, the writer says that information about the matter is lost, not the matter itself.
