    Well no actually but you can send the address of another person and still
    get the stuff you ordered :)

    When IRL you pretend to be someone else, we call this "committing
    forgery". For good reasons, too. We simply can't have it that people
    close deals pretending to be someone else. This "someone else" will have
    to pay for it, one way or the other.

    I totally agree with David where he says that with a good firewall, and
    not trying to do nasty things, you have nothing to fear. And certainly
    no valid reason to hide your ip...

    Furthermore, you *could* look for a provider who provides you with a
    good proxy-server to hide behind. But I'm not sure that this will
    satisfy your needs.

    It will travel back to where the fake address is supposed to be, not where
    you are. Think of the return address on a letter. If you put a phony
    return address on the envelope and the post office has to return it to
    sender, where does it go? It's the exact same thing. The source address
    in IP packets is your return address. If you use a phony one, you'll get
    nothing back, because there is no other mechanism to determine the path to
    you, other than that address.

    Well, there are chains of anonymizing proxies or mail2news-gateways if you
    want to post anonymously. But beware, a lot of newsservers is already
    blocking messages coming from anonymizers due to abuse of them.

    The OP also wants to use the blow-in postcards in magazines
    to request catalogs -- but without revealing his address...

    Ignorant on the concept -- for sure.

    suppose he were a chinese dissident trying to get important information
    out and the 'law', in this case repressive, were trying to track him down?

    desire for anonymity and untraceability are not always signs of
    wrong-doing; the 'law' is not always good.

    I've sometimes wanted to visit sites of the KKK or other questionable
    organizations but I don't want to leave traces. doesn't make me a bad
    person, just curious and seeking info.

    There are anonyimizing sites, that will disguise your activities. However,
    there is no way to disguise your IP, when connecting to one of those sites.
