Windows 7: The Internet should not be anonymous

The Internet should not be anonymous

Quote:

The news of the U.S. government's latest attempt at a national citizen "Internet ID" brought yet another round of choruses: The Internet must be free! Any government ID plan is bad! Anonymity for all forever! Perform an Internet search on "Obama national Internet ID" to see the screeds against the proposed plan. Security experts around the world are saying the government would have to pry their anonymity from their cold, dead touchscreens.

I chuckled at these angry responses because they sound like the heated calls for anarchy in the 1970s from tattooed punk rockers smoking unfiltered Camels while the Sex Pistols played in the background. The difference is the angry masses in this case are being riled up by security experts, who have been ranting wildly enough to spill their expensive Imperial Stout all over their tablet devices and brie salads.

This isn't going to do much good for individuals, they just get stolen or hacked anyways. This will just give more to eat for the identaty thieves.

I didn't read anything more than the excerpt in the OP...that was enough for me. Although something like this may be inevitable, it is no surprise that it debuted with a liberal administration. My solution is simple, when this becomes law, I shall abandon the internet.

I wouldn't worry too much about this just yet. The government could not collectively gather themselves to take a leak without screwing it up in some way. To date they can't even secure their own information, and there will no doubt be ways around it years before they could put it together anyway.

Are we really going to talk politics here? I can get another warning if y'all really want to go there.

The disinformation regarding Obama's net neutrality initiative runs rampant. Do y'all watch too much FOX News, or what?
