How to Contact Loohan:
(<--- This link is for NORMAL communications.)
If you don't want the agencies who read my emails to know more than they have to, there's an easy way to leave them out of the loop.
I have a hushmail account. One cool feature is that there's a way to contact me in encrypted form by using this contact form. Do not use the above link if you want secure communications.
You do not need any membership or software other than the form to talk to me. However, my reply will not be encrypted. Unless...
You can also get your own free or paid hushmail account at hushmail.com. Then we can freely exchange encrypted messages in both directions. And drive "them" nuts with curiosity.
So if you want to have a private conversation with me, open your own account, and our messages will automatically be decrypted when we open the emails. Your replies will not be encrypted, though, unless you make sure to have "Encrypt Message" checked off in the "Message Options" tab above your reply box.
I have been unable to detect any agency corruption of hushmail.
Hopefully you don't have a keystroke logger.
Hushmail is legally required to surrender access to your account to law enforcement agencies if they have a court order. It is unlikely they are going to get a court order to scrutinize the communications of people plotting to make orgone muffins.
I keep getting emails in Hushmail from strangers asking me questions, but the return addy says donotreply@____. If you don't give a return addy, I can't reply.
There is no advantage to using Hushmail if you are not using the encryption features. You can use my gmail addy as given above. Hushmail is cumbersome due to encryption/security, and the search feature seldom produces a result.
Alas, despite my posting this, many people continue to choose my hushmail addy for non-secure communications from mainstream email services.
Other issues crop up with people who do get a free hushmail account:
Please be aware that I receive a lot of emails. I don't have time to chit-chat. I am not omniscient. I don't do soul readings, cogitate about the meaning of life, nor am I likely to have insights about your soul purpose, etc. I am here to kick evil in the ass.
- Some people let their free hushmail accounts fill up so that they can no longer receive, yet continue to write me as though they expect me to be able to reply.
- Also, people let their free account lapse, so that if I try to contact them later, my email goes into a black hole never to be seen or returned. Hushmail does not bounce these back to me.
Also, I get a fair bit of emails from people who don't bother to read my site, but expect me to spoon-feed them stuff they can easily find answers to on my site. I have little patience with such.
