Bear in mind that articles posted through 'anonymous re-mailers' are mostly
the sort of garbage that no-one wants to read, so experienced news-group
users tend to ignore them.

If you just want to not have the IP number of your internet connection 
visible in the headers of your posts, use one of the news-servers that 
doesn't show it - look at the headers of other people's articles; the Path 
header shows (at the extreme right-hand end) the server used to post the 
article - and if it isn't obvious from the headers, the name of the actual 
service can be found by a little web-searching, or by asking the people 
who wrote the article.  I use "Individual.net" which shows up in the Path 
header as "uni-berlin".  You can read about their service at
