Heh. My husband and I deliberately SSH through our own ssh server
and then telnet out from there when we mush. We also give our
address to friends who want to SSH through it to conceal their
identity from game powers that be who can see connection info.

We also give out email addresses and host web pages on our other
servers to allow people we know who want to maintain some sense of
anonymity.

Stinkers, ain't we? :)
