Volume 2, July 2006

It is with great pleasure I take over as editor of this most famous of craptologic journals.
How have we existed over the last six years without the types of excellent papers we see represented in this issue.
Hopefully we can now remember all we need know about bit commitment with the help of Mike Stay's little ditty, we can appreciate the uses of the rubber hose with Thomas Martin's and Laurence O'Toole's incitefull analysis of this much neglected area of craptology, we can learn how to construct zero knowledge proofs with the help of Nigel Smart's survey, and finally with Dic Bolony's seminal paper on randomized proofs we can see how craptologic research can be extended into proving anything.
