Contacts message board for ecological direct actionThis board has
been set up solely to provide a means for people to get in touch with others
who are concerned about what is happening to our home. That is the only
restriction on it. Use it to leave a contact address, or to have a
conversation about things that are going on in your area.
To make it easy for people to see messages from people near them, put your
region and country in the 'subject' field on the form. (eg Sussex, UK; or
This is not an ideal medium for this contacts thing, but we will figure out
something easier to use. Anyone who can do good cgi scripting please help! (PGP key)
SecurityIf you don't want to be traced or hassled by email from
nutters (this happens far less than some think) there are a few things you can
learn about fairly easily.
- Web Proxies
- every time your browser requests a page from a web server, it has to tell
that machine where to send it to. This is your IP address, and depending on
how your server works, this could identify your email address, or at least
your server. You can confuse this somewhat by using a proxy. See Simple Anonymity for a
very good explanation of this, and how to do it. The script for this message
board puts the IP address of your server with the message. This doesn't
necessarily matter, unless you have a static IP address from your server (eg
mine is resolved to savage.easynet.co.uk--not too hard to figure out...) Its
worth knowing things like this, ask your tech support. Don't let this put you
off using our board though, the difference here is that we are telling you
what goes on. If you want to stop this, use a proxy. When we can get our own
scripts together this wont happen, nor will there be any ads.
- 'Anonymous' Email
- Not Hotmail! Most web-based email accounts give out your IP number in the
header of the message. For the purposes of this message board, a hotmail
account is probably ok, because you are not trying to avoid state
investigation (pointless), only keeping your anonymity. But hotmail is run by
microsoft who don't have a very good attitude. subdimension seems a lot better.
You have a choice between web-based and full pop mail (eg like you use a
proper mail client for, and don't need to stay online while reading and
replying to messages). The pop option, though, uses your existing outgoing
mail server, so this will still be somewhere in the headers, but not obvious.
So if that bothers you, use the web version and a proxy server. Send a
message to yourself to check. Subdimension doesn't insist on cookies like
We don't want to give the impression any of this will give you anonymity
against the State. Only the state can know for sure how to do that. This is
just a few precautions to separate you enough so that you can choose who to
have contact with.
this is a bit rough, better info will follow.
