Ira: It's a way of posting anonymously online.

Capt. Ross: Why would a teenage vlogger hide her server?

I laugh when they just pinpoint the source of ANY internet transmission at the snap of their fingers in those shows. I always thought to myself "I'd like to see that work against Tor!" Heck, if I was a criminal... *shifty eyes*..... I'd at least use something to cover my tracks, they make it look like no one does. It's good to see fantasy catch up with reality once in awhile! =)

Me too - This night's numbers also just mentioned onion routing, and within the same five minutes, they managed to write a program to crack it, do so, and trace an IP to an address...Atleast the numbers were reasonable - the clearly fake IP addresses(645.872.123.632) always scare me.
