I admire your diligence, although I wonder about your threat model if you are bragging about a drug-kingpin-level setup on a forum.





I've been writing about privacy, anonymity, etc for many years, as Mirimir. And I can't write honestly unless I test stuff.

I don't do anything iffier than many who write using their meatspace identity. But for many years, I wanted to keep that segregated from my professional life. That doesn't matter so much now, but it's Mirimir who I am. So hey.


I didn't take it as bragging; to me it looks like it comes from a position of wanting to teach. Security is basically a collection of things you ought not to forget, so I think exposure is important for people to a hold of it.

I don't do anything cool, at least as of right now, but I still check my locks and I'm happy to impart my knowledge like this. Privacy is a human right! I hope journalists, Uighurs, and whoever else can find their way to decent security information because of mirimir's efforts.
