Pragmatic Anonymity


Resource Type:  Article

Create an account with an anonymization service. Tell everyone about that account, including the password. The account basically acts as a public mail drop, anyone can use it to send messages, with no way for the recipient to determine who originally sent it. The more people that know about this account, the better, since it makes the list of potential recipients longer and longer. If you choose the anonymizer service well, then technical means of identifying the sender will be impossible, and if you make sure enough people know about it, then the pragmatic means (i.e. "I only know one person who might set this up, so I know who sent it") are also stopped short.
