Well, you can drive on muddy roads, and never wash your vehicle. But then you may get cited for a dirty license tag.
I think this is public space, so maybe tracking it isn't that bad.
What public should demand is limited access to that data for law enforcement (written request approved by third party, maybe some judge) and data retention rules.
Isn't the Internet also public space?
Public-facing web pages are. Stuff that can only be accessed after pubkey authentication on mine SSH server is not.
I don't think that I am opposed to logging IP addresses of connections. I want some reasonable retention period, some limits for law enforcement to access that data, law enforcement that doesn't abuse privileges to bypass these limits.
I think that law enforcement abuses their privileges in my country, so I do use Tor for some Internet activity, though.
True. I do think that anything like anonymity is only possible on the Internet.
