Dear qubes-users,

I am long time qubes follower and user. I apologize in advance if anyone
feels this request is spam.

I am looking for two invite codes needed to sign up to anonymous
riseup.net email service.

I am hoping there are some qubes users who are riseup.net account
holders.

Can anyone please send me a couple of invite codes that I might be able
to sign up?

Thank you in advance.

Mr. Harrison:
Hi
I'm sorry but I personally dont think its ethical to vouch for a
complete stranger. Especially as you do not appear to have a record on
this forum.
Might I suggest you apply to riseup via their website stating why you
think you deserve an account. They usually grant one after about a week
or so.
Good luck

This is not spam, however this is against riseup's rules.

Riseup users are not supposed to invite people they don't know personally.

If it is only secure e-mail you need, and you are in an emergency, then
I'd recommend protonmail. For less secure needs, I'd recommend openmailbox.

I agree that asking random strangers for Riseup invites is inappropriate,
especially on a mailing list.

But just FYI, I received my riseup account by mailing the administrators,
explaining the ongoing harassment/hacking/spying situation that
necessitated better email security, and they gave me an account without
referrals.

sigaint is another option that doesn't require referrals, but does require
Tor to access as it's only available as hidden service (a good thing,
probably):

(Sigaint was asking for donations recently, saying they only had a month
or so of operating funds left; so there's a chance they could suddenly
disappear, but for now, it's not a bad option.)

Cheers.

JJ

Riseup sent out a similar message last week, saying they needed to raise
funds quickly.
