Based on a request from Interpol, the Finnish police have gotten a search&seizure warrant on my home and the anon.penet.fi server, and gotten the real mail address of a user that has allegedly posted material stolen from the Church of Scientology. Fortunately I managed to prevent them from getting more than this one, single address. There is going to be a very high-level public debate on how it is possible that a country that prides itself on honoring human rights and privacy very strongly has allowed this to happen. Maybe we can use the publicity to stop this from happening again. But in this situation, I find it pretty understandable that some of you might want all traces of your ID removed. I have now added the alias "remove@anon.penet.fi" to my server. If you want to be removed, just send a (possibly empty) message to that address. But I am hoping it won't be empty. I am hoping that you do outline *why* you have needed the server, and what you think about the actions of the Finnish authorities. The messages will be anonymized using the normal anon.penet.fi procedure, and used to support the demand for a re-interpretation of the privacy laws in Finland. If you *don't* want to be removed, but still want to send a comment, you can use the addresses anon-support@lists.otol.fi (if you are *for* keeping the server) and anon-against@lists.otol.fi (if you are *against* the server). If you want to be anonymous, use anon-support@anon.penet.fi and anon-against@anon.penet.fi.
