Thank you for visiting the dizum.com Abuse Pages.
dizum.com operates both a remailer
(a system which automatically anonymizes and forwards e-mail) and a
mail2news gateway (a system that forwards
e-mail to usenet). As such it serves an important purpose for many of its users
who could not otherwise express themselves freely, or who need to discuss
sensitive personal topics.
Of course, it is not intended to annoy or harass. In case you have received an
unwanted message, the remailer offers a method to prevent this from happening
again, please find out how at our "howto block your email-address" at
the bottom of this page.
We also run a mail2news gateway please consult the
The Dizum Usenet F.A.Q. v1.03 and than decide if it is useful to
complain about a usenet posting or individual.
- NO content is hosted at this server
- NO user data is retained, logs are not kept
- The remailer services only act as a proxy (mail goes in and out)
- The system acts as a proxy for email/usenet
- The server is hosted in Amsterdam/The Netherlands
Therefore the applicable law is:
nl: 6:196c article 1 (civil law) link to article
54a (penal law) link to article
eu: article 12/13 (ecommerce directive 2000/31/EC) link to article"
Guide for Law Enforcement Agencies:
1) we do not have any user information from people who use our service (it provides anonimity, remember!)
2) we are not allowed to answer any request for user data anyways, you have to file an MLAT request with the NL authorities.
3) we will point out the line under #1 here above to those NL authorities (Police in Amsterdam).
4) we suggest people who received an unwanted email follow the instructions below in how to block dizum mails.
Howto block your email-address ?
To block the remailer from sending mail to your address, please send
a message containing the line
The remailer administrator will take steps to prevent use of the
remailer for any illegal purpose.
The remailer is intended for communicating anonymously, not for
sending unsolicited commercial mail (UCE or spam). If you ever receive
UCE from the remailer, the remailer administrator would appreciate a
complete copy of the message in order to prevent it in the future. UCE
will typically contain a contact address or telephone number, which is
sufficient to identify the sender and -- where applicable -- take
legal action against the originator.
More information about blocking addresses:
If you wish to block other addresses you can do so by including one
line of the type "destination-block user@domain" for each address.
As a postmaster, you can block anonymous mail to your entire domain.
To do so, please use the line "destination-block @your-domain.com".
If you do not want to read anonymous messages in mailing lists or
newsgroups, please consult the manual of your mail reading program.
The software will allow you to use `filters' or `kill files' to
avoid being bothered by messages you do not want to read.
Purpose of Anonymous Remailers:
It is easy to store electronic mail for a long time and to search huge
amounts of data for information about people when they do not expect
it. Thus, the information society may pose a hitherto unknown threat
to everybody's privacy. In totalitarian regimes sending critical
messages may even cause a threat to the senders' lives if their
identity ever becomes known.
For that reason, anonymous remailers have been developed. Remailers
use cryptographic methods to conceal the origin of messages. Each
message is sent through a network of anonymizing servers so that not
even the remailer administrators have any information about the origin
of the message. It is impossible for us to determine the original
sender of any message. Please don't ask, because we don't know either.
