Subject: APAS Anonymous Remailer Use [FAQ 1/8]: Overview

This is the first of eight parts of a list of frequently-asked
questions (FAQ) and their answers regarding anonymous remailer use.
The newsgroup containing the most discussion of anonymous remailers is
<alt.privacy.anon-server> (APAS).  Consequently, this FAQ is the "APAS
FAQ for Remailer Users," or the APAS user FAQ.

Champerty wrote the original APAS user FAQ with the help of Stray Cat.
Thanks also go out to Thomas Boschloo, Michael T. Shinn, Lord Running
Clam, and all the regulars in APAS.  Computer Cryptology (CC) now
maintains the FAQ, using CVS to track changes since Champerty's
leaving.  CC thanks Frog-Admin for review of changes to part 5;
Redbird for FAQ 4.8; Ahab, Saddle, and Doc.Cypher for FAQ 7.3; and
Boris 'pi' Piwinger, Stefan Wagner (Narnia Admin) and Jochen
Wersdörfer for assistance with FAQ 4.10.
