identities online are no different than real life
Most people, In real life have a work life, a public life, and a private life in bed or at home.
I agree with the 4Chan founder for the most part, but I don't think he goes far enough, as he doesn't give a solution. Well the solution is to block facebook, stop using google, get a real ISP, a real pop3/smtp server, a real domain, and real webhosting be it an unmanaged rack or shared hosting.
Half the people complaining can't even code basic html, let alone type a full sentence, so part of this problem is pure laziness on the part of the people bitching. Learn TCPIP, gather tools to watch your connections, learn from it, I ain't saying you are going to be some reverse engineer guru for virus's, but you can find things when you LOOK, problem is people don't look. Another thing, don't go cheap, jesus tits, every time people buy the cheapest fucking crap, you get what you pay for, you want to be operating on the cheapest crap (albeit free always the goal) expect to be treated like someone operating on the cheapest crap.
You like using that yahoo or mailinator email? Expect it to be blocked in places.
You know, its funny, I came from fidonet and bbs's and there were identities back then as well, it isn't until this fucking war on terror that I started hearing the dirty greedy filthy talismanic language of "profile" or "customer profile"
Since then, BBS (bulletin board system), went to message board, and message board went to CMS (customer management system) another filthy greedy talismanic word.
My websites were a planned COST LOSS on purpose from the start. Just like my security plan was a COST LOSS plan from the start. You can ultimately only afford as much security as you have the monetary capability (along with technical intelligence and time) to continuously support. By putting up a website I provide anonymity to others.
How many idiots bitching that the 4chan guy is wrong, spent more than a year reading +Fravia 's searchlores.org ? You would already know what Google is about, likewise you would have known what facebook was about before it even existed. They are there to make money.
If you had enough money, you could hire half the population to fight the other half.
So, Here we are.
