Free jim.com email addresses

For as long as comments remain open on this post, you can get a free someone@jim.com email address, such that any mail sent to someone@jim.com will be forwarded to the address requested in your comment.

I have discovered that yahoo does not like people registering email addresses by proxy, and google likes one true name to rule them all, insisting on it as part of the android operating system, among other places.  My intent is to obstruct such identity collecting activities by obscurity.  This redirect is not guaranteed to last forever, though it will last a long time, and is not secure against a serious adversary.  I will eventually delete the comments, so that people cannot discover the true email address by simply reading the comments unless they are quick off the mark.  Not all names are available.  There are already quite a lot of active someone@jim.com email addresses.  I don’t intend to supply such obscurity to large numbers of people, because I am lazy, and because if I did, it would no longer be obscure, and  so am not going to put up an automatic system to support large numbers of addresses.

This, like voting for Cthulhu, is merely a gesture of protest, pointing in the direction of the need to change the world, rather than an actual attempt to change the world:  To actually change the world, use cypherpunks remailers and tor.

    Jim, what is your email address? If someone wanted to ask you something privately?

      Jim, I realized I didn’t leave my own email in the form when I posted. This post has it if you wanted to send me a message instead of publicly posting yours.

    Hey, I won’t say no to this. Benefits of reading your entire back catalogue, right? Assuming you still monitor it.

    Testin’ again.

    What are your thoughts on raising the cryptographic middle-finger to Cthulhu like “Silk Road”.

      Obviously the way to go. I am in fact working on this, but as yet my project is not ready to be seen by other’s eyes, even as a prototype and a design document.
