But that's a flawed model in open (i.e. free sign up) internet communities... because plenty of the volunteers are douchebags and troll-hobbyists like Mr. Brutsch. Can you sign up 20,000? Sure, but you can't control them all, especially when the worst offenders have connections with Reddit HQ.

And "anonymity"? That's the least of your problems, it's lost all the time on the internet in some form or another.
What matters is what you did online, at the end of the day.

I feel sorry for the guy's wife.
Also, what a fucking piece of ****. He deserves all he gets. I got bored, I started playing D&D on a message board. As opposed to doing pervert stuff, for example.

im just amazed someone who is apparently quite savvy with the internet could be so fucking naive as to think he would never be unmasked. nothing is sacred on the internet, least of all your true identity.

Why the hell did he think it was a good idea to admit to any of that? Deny everything.

But if you are a criminal and you try to use online anonymity services of any kind....YMMV. Chances are the Internet works differently than you are aware and you've seen too many movies...
