Yes what you say is probably true for someone who is engaged in
terrorism, pedophilia, or anti-rule of law activities (unfortunately I
must add here those engaged in leaking government secrets - no matter
what the cause).
But for people like myself who simply help identify criminals - then I
would have thought that tor is enough anonymity. If not, then we would
have to conclude that our governments are all controlled by some group
of criminals and that these would try to identify "snitches" to protect
themselves. IMHO, if we are already at this level of international
government corruption then we must surely be in the period foretold of
nearly 2000 years ago - of days when the 2/3rds of humanity are
and the beast is in control. Of course, this is speculation (?? or did
someone 200 years ago know the "modus operandii" of this criminal
group). Slightly off topic I know, but none-the-less relevant to the
subject. Maybe it s just paranoia or are all the pieces now beginning
Thankyou to all that replied.
