Now let's see if I have this right. You encrypt everything, and you surf anonymously, and NOBODY but nobody can tell who you are or see where you have browsed or what you have done there, right?

So, Government goes to all the ISPs and gets their info about all their customers. And there you are, an innocent little human being, a simple statistic, never been in jail, paid your taxes on time, never had any problems at all - good upstanding citizen.

Then they look at your online info provided by your ISP. It shows 100 gigs of browsing bandwidth for the last month. And all they have to show for all that bandwidth is a big fat nothing. They don't know where you browsed to. They don't have a clue what you did when you got there. BIG FAT RED FLAG.

So, how do you get yourself out of that one? Or better yet, how do you keep yourself from getting into it without spending a fortune just to surf and stuff?

I know. One hundred gigs is a lot of bandwidth for an average person. But what if it was only 10, or only 5. What is the percent of the Internet population that uses strict anonymity in the ways that the article describes? If it is not a large percent, Government computers just might be able to RED FLAG them all for future study, and then legal threats. NDAA.
