Additions and amendments to the site FAQ.

Technical

  • How does I2P find other I2P users when starting for the first time?
  • How safe is this 'bootstrap' process?
  • What is a floodfill?
  • WTF is all this noise about Seedless?
  • I've heard a rumor of something called I2FS. What is it?
  • IRC (Internet Relay Chat) is weird! What is a changate? Who is Fox? Who is CIA?
  • I've heard of Tor. What's different about I2P? Should I use both?
  • Is it safe? Has the code been audited?
  • Will I2P be able to cope with a huge influx of new users? (Does it scale?)

Crypto & Paranoia

  • How can I be sure I'm not being spied on?
  • Isn't I2P encouraging copyright infringement?

Setup & Configuration

  • I2P is running, but I can't get to my gmail (or other regular websites) .. (https://)
  • I have I2P running and I'm on #i2p (so I think I'm done setting up) but I can't load any eepsites (though I don't know I'm coming into irc through a changate)?
  • How can I browse for porn when stuck behind the Whitehouse firewall?
