> MIXMASTER, has been stealthily getting more user-friendly

> text-menuing system for sending out anonymous mails (and
> Usenet postings) that's almost intuitive. There are emacs
> and mutt interfaces. And provisionally you can also create
> nyms that can receive and send anonymous mail too (although
> that seems to segfault in the Debian version and we're far
> too anonymous to find out why). Of course, to continue the
> crypto-wankery theme, alt.privacy.anon-server is now a
> market-mandated mess of mutual recrimination, spams and
> hoaxery, but it all seems to work, mostly. So you can stop
