Gentelmen, i'm not so sure that this is the right direction !

About: Tor: An anonymous Internet communication system

source: article above
Using Tor can help you anonymize web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.
The has kind of done an about face on the anonymous web since starting this site.  And it's not all because of the spam.  Now i'm not so sure that the biggest challenge the Internet has to face down is not this obsession with anonymity, and with the REST stateless, and consequence less transactions.   Those just foster a kind of total fantasy land, a la la ville.  Actions should have consequences. People should learn from the consequences they experience.  As this wonderous Internet, this grand mind of man, comes to grips with reality and as it becomes useful in the long run, it will need to get it's head out of the clouds. 

Let's get busy !
