    I can do all that as mirimir, more or less anonymously.

    Also, it's interesting that many of the opinion leaders were quoted anonymously. There's a subtext in that: the powerful get privacy, but the weak get pwned. Typical :thumbd:

    There's nothing from the Tor Project or ACLU. EFF is represented, though.

    What self serving, twisted rhetoric! That's an excellent motivation to not "exist" online. After all, you can't track or datamine someone who doesn't exist. Let the games begin continue.

    Many were quoted anonymously? Twisted rhetoric?
    Suggest you re-read it ~~ fully this time, instead of just the first paragraph.
    Amid the wave of increasingly rampant sensationalist journalism, the linked article/report is a breath of fresh air.
    What use is rhetoric if it is NOT twisted, and is NOT self-serving, eh?
    Vastly differing opinions (expectations) among the study respondants, and all the quoted responses seem fairly articulate.
    Thanks for posting the link.

    This to me has all the hallmarks of yet more spin doctoring ultimately to condition the reader to accept further erosion of privacy to the point of none at all. I found the “practiced” phraseology to be so tedious, as to be nauseating.

    I do all those things, so hey :)

    It's just that I do some of them as mirimir, some as [redacted], ..., and some as my true name.
    Yes, they were.

    mirmir, have you ever [redacted] after a long night of [redacted], and wound up with your [redacted] being all messed up and [redacted] ?

    yeah, me too.

    For sure! You would not believe what [redacted] my [redacted] [redacted] has been [redacted].
    Happy New Year :)
