The anonymous mailing system at pax has the following policy:
- A log of activities of the remailing software is maintained when
debugging is in progress (often) which could be used to correlate
real identities with aliases - this is no more or less information
than is available in the alias database which is not visible to
anyone except the root user. Message-id's are NOT stored in this log,
and the contents of messages and posts are NOT stored anywhere, nor
are they scrutinized by me or anyone else. I don't care and I don't
want to know. If someone does something unreasonable and I get
complaints then I could lock out a particular source of mail if
I didn't get a good explanation, but I am not going to go reading
other peoples mail in order to censor it !
- Under no circumstance short of being arrested and/or the equipment
commandeered by someone else will the alias database be divulged
or the contents or routes of messages deliberately intercepted.
