My research indicates it's exactly what I thought it was. No matter
how much you "mix" your coins with X other people, all you're doing is
making it so that if anyone wants to trace the origin of those coins,
instead of it leading directly back to you, it leads directly back to
a group of X people, including you. If X isn't sufficiently large, it
becomes a pointless exercise. There's no way X is large enough to
offer any sort of meaningful protection.
