This is what's listed in the newsgroups file:
alt.anonymous alt! Who goes there?
alt.anonymous.messages An anonymous message pool newgroup, whatever that is.
Alt.anonymous is just another content-free, basically dead newsgroup. Alt.
anonymous.messages is the group used for message pools. Since the general
rule for naming newsgroups is to use dots only for designating a lower group
hierarchy. misc.anonymous-messages is probably a better name, since there is
no misc.anonymous.* newsgroup hierarchy.
PGP encrypted mail prefered.
