IP addresses are tracked and stored, phone conversations are tapped and traced. Even the damn neighbor has one eye carefully positioned between two blinds to watch your life.
I would like to think that my online presence is anonymous (specifically my account here) but I know there is a trail that could lead here. The trail must start with people I know in real life though, or I suppose any moderator that I've emailed could out me.
I wonder how people I know would react to my posts here. I think they'd look at me differently. Judge me more harshly, trust me less often.
