I agree that if something goes wrong, you need to know who is responsible because the society needs to know. The problem is this system could turn into a kind of "management by terror/pressure", a kind of fake freedom: You can do whatever you can, but we will know in a second if you do something bad.

Just for the record. You are not agreeing with _me_. I was paraphrasing their flawed argument.

Basically they want to make us collect potential evidence for crimes that have not happened yet.

Though, I don't think anonymity will decide someone to commit a crime or not, it's just easier. It's not because you can you have to do it. The point is if it happens, we (the society) need to find someone to sustain its structure.

This is the darkest point, they just have to say you did something wrong without tell you why and the guiltiness criteria aren't defined. Plus, how does a newbie could be find guilty to use WEP instead of WPA ?
