If you look through the configuration menus (of course this is harder if
you use a desktop that has abandoned putting things in organised menus),
you'll find an item called something like "network proxy."  It lets that
user specify a proxy, and various applications will make use of that
information.  Not all, but this is no worse than Windows, where you have
to separately configure a plethora of internet applications.

All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted, there is no point trying
to privately email me, I will only read messages posted to the public lists.

George Orwell's '1984' was supposed to be a warning against tyranny, not
a set of instructions for supposedly democratic governments.
