just wondering if I should be more precautious. Most likely gonna go with the charcoal method seeing this stop at the post offices lately but to those who have got n, did you use any proxies to access this site or protonmail?

I don't use anything for this site, but maybe I should. Also, I didn't buy N, but I did communicate with A, and each time I used TOR with a VPN. I heard doing this could be worse if the VPN provider isn't trustworthy, but I'm using ProtonVPN, which is made by the same people who made ProtonMail, so it should be fine.

I didn't use VPN. I don't think it's necessary when you use protonmail.

VPN is not really quite as necessary as protonmail. I know someone who ordered using their regular email and police showed up at their door and confiscated their N (no joke). I used money transfer service to pay, but played around with bitcoin and it's not too hard to figure out. Just takes a while to transfer the bitcoin to your wallet (like 5 days).

Well - I'm Swiss and I trust protonmail - it was invented and developed by Swiss people. It's encrypted and the servers of the service are located in Switzerland and not affected by US and EU jurisdiction. So they can suck your nuggets if they want to get you.

Do you know about how long ago this happened?
