Welcome to the Cypherpunks Distributed Remailer.

The purpose of this mailing list is to explore the frontier of cryptography,
civil liberty, economics, and related issues.

This is a very high traffic mailing list.

Several members of the mailing list are involved in various types of events
through the year. Participation by members of the list does not construe any
support or affilliation with the mailing list. Contact the author of all
works obtained through the remailer network. They retain original rights.

There are currently 4 indipendant but cooperating sites supporting full
cross posting of traffic. The goal is to provide a mechanism for improved
list stability as well as making moderation and other forms of attacks
harder to mount. These sites are:

htp.com (Japan)

a procmail script is used to remove duplicates.

in order to discuss the various issues and projects appropriate to their
individual membership. These groups generaly announce their meetings via the
