Sting operation?

A bit of conspiracy-theory:

from here

Besides speculation and rumor, does anyone know any

hard facts about Ultimate Anonymity....i.e. who runs
it, are they true privacy advocates, etc.?
They claim to have over 10,000 members. I'm not so sure.
I have a U.A. account, so I am familiar with the two
primary "From" headers that are used when you post via
Ultimate and
Just out of curiosity I did a DejaNews search for a posting
history of these two "From" headers, just to get some idea of
how many other people might be using U.A., and what variety of
newsgroups they post to.
It seems the vast majority of posts thru U.A. are very poorly
disguised promotions for U.A....posts with texts like "Wow, it
sure is kewl posting anonymously like this! Go to www.ultimate-"
Also disturbing is that most of these "plugs" for U.A., from U.A.,
seem to be aimed at various perverted newsgroups...prettyboy,
teens, necrophilia, bestiality, etc. Sick...
Anyone have the true skinny on these guys?????

>They're spammers, and they're using's free service, and
probalby charging for it. That's enough; don't use them.

Here's something interesting from this thread (

Is UA a front org for the DHS?

This message is followed by UA shilling as "Winston Doolittle" signed "Jiff" defending UA....

Another usenet thread:

UltimateAnonymity, has all the numbers to be a sting, it is impossible
to run a privacy service under those prices, the money must come in
from other sources I suspect, come membership at $58?

Yeah sure.And who pays the server bandwith, the domain name, the
staff,the taxes, and so much more involved.

When I first found UA a few years back I though they would take the
money then shut down the company and that is your life membership gone,
but seeing they are still in business, I can just think of an NSA
operation, with spamming rights included so they even look half criminal.

The NSA wants as many people as possible using their sting operation and
the best way of doing that is making it as cheap as possible.

I dont have any proof, but common sense tells me it is impossible to run
the service on $58 for life, not even $100.
