Just yesterday I sent message to this list. As a reply I got
message from anon.penet.fi anonymous mail services saying that I've
been assigned anonymous mail account. This means, that copy of my
mail went to address anxxxxx@anon.penet.fi.

This is more serious that it first sounds. That anonymous recipient can
expose anonymous mail accounts of everyone who sends mail to
this list. He may have signed in this list twice so he will see normal
copies AND anonymized copies of every message. It's just piece of cake to
collect lists of mail addresses and corresponding anon accounts
this way.

To this list maintainer:
PLEASE DON'T LET ANY ANONYMOUS ACCOUNTS ON THIS (OR ANY) MAILING LIST.

To everybody:
IF YOU HAVE ANON.PENET.FI ACCOUNT, DON'T SEND MAIL TO THIS LIST.
