Meh, I'm Miss Direction on facebook and I have zero friends.

Considering how many people "value" privacy, they don't do a very good job of naming their kids anonymous sounding names.

I'm looking at you, Unique Burger.

Name your kid "Unique" (along with 300 other people).

[FAIL]

If I ever have kids, I'm naming them John and Mary Smith.

And my name isn't even Smith.

For you purists who are confused, Ironic now means "that which you wouldn't expect"

Jill Came Down With Two-Fifty: For you purists who are confused, Ironic now means "that which you wouldn't expect"


More ironic in that a company that has become synonymous with collecting and selling any little piece of information about you is helping you hide your identity.

/not really a purist, but I think it fits, and I enjoy irony discussions

Ironic also means "summon Irony Police"

Ok. Let me get this strait; to anonymously tell fat kid he's fat, I'll need to harness the power of a few dozen computers? How bout' I just jamb a misspelled note to that effect down the vents in his locker door. Better yet, why don't I just push him backwards over my friend who had, just prior, snuck up behind him and knelt down? Will that get LULS too?

This won't work either. The problem is trust: When you start talking about friends of friends, that's a really tenuous link to depend on for anonymous behavior.

Really, there are few good ways to maintain anonymity on the internet, and pretty much none that I would trust in the face of interest by, say, the NSA.

/Used to work for them.

What's the point of using proxies you know and can trust? So I route my traffic through seven different computers, but they're all my friends on facebook then it should make it easier to crack them and find out who I am.

This stinks of social engineering to catch dumb .tor users.

BRB, there is a knock at the door...
