How to use chan alt.anonymous.messages 1. Join chan alt.anonymous.messages. 2. View some messages to get the ideas other people already implemented. 3. Choose encryption format without metadata leaks. 4. Choose text output (base32, base64, base85, base91, uue, hex...) and apply it to encrypted data every time. 5. Choose message identification method by means of message title generating, for example: - hexadecimal form of CTR-encrypted block built from current 64-bit timestamp and some secret/variable 64-bit data, like "thread identifier". Communication parties share secret key. - hexadecimal form of favourite HMAC calculated on current date, using secret key shared by communication parties. - hsub algorithm used in MixMaster software - hexadecimal form of CBC/CFB encrypted 128-bit secret shared constant with random unique 128-bit IV. Well, you get the idea. DO NOT use unique constant private address for sending messages. 6. Send your message to chan alt.anonymous.messages using chan address as sender. DO NOT use unique constant private address for sending messages. Have fun.

All users should use the same TTL to avoid being distinguished. I recommend 28 days.

You, me, and many others have consistently recommended 28 days TTL since the slider was added to the interface. I don't know who the turkey is that's recommending 4 days, but ignore his advice. 90% of bitmessage users don't even connect in a 4 day period and would miss all those messages. Sometimes I don't connect for 2 or 3 weeks. If you used TTL=4, I never saw your message.

+1 for 28 days TTL

I agree. A felt hat is enough distinguishment for this old chap.

The problem you fucks don't get is that 28 days is not the default. Most people probably leave the slider where it is and thus you will end up with two groups of people, those who leave the default and those who adjust the slider to max. It's not like most people actually care if you run BM frequent enough for the default TTL or not. If you don't do it that is more your problem than the senders problem.

I recommend 0 days. In fact I'm using them on you all, right now.
