Imagine if the police knew exactly what you do online: All the porn sites you scan secretly, the vitriolic comments you leave on blogs, the number of hours you spend playing Farmville.
In Denmark, police have recommended to Parliament that it create laws that make it impossible for citizens to surf anonymously. According to Danish-language blog Computerworld Denmark, the proposal is intended to help investigate terrorism.

Cant monitor stuff if they do not know who you are. There are ways to protect your anonymity

Did you only read the title?

I think it would be extremely difficult to track everybody and their actions on the internet. There would have to be a HUGE database to hold all the info. Possible, yes... Practical, no...
Even then, people who want to post anonymously will find ways to do it. As of now, humans can hardly control identify theft, and people's financial lives are being ruined... so I can only imagine identity theft of internet users, and people posting as other people. Hackers will probably be taking advantage of other internet identities and pretending to be someone they are not.
I can see so many issues with this that I have a hard time believing it will ever happen.edit on 24-6-2011 by gift0fpr0phecy because: (no reason given)

We don't need this kind of thing.. Absolutely a waste of resources! I mean, imagine being monitored all the time? No thanks. We already have way too many cameras monitoring our every move on the streets and what have you!
And to be honest, I don't think the rest of Denmark would want our privacy invaded. I believe that we are very proud of our freedom of speech.
Let's wait and see what happens

This may seem really scary for all of Denmark citizens but trust me, the government will not monitor every citizen. It is just a waste of time, this law technically gives you access to anyones personal life without needing to infest a person with a virus. This law will be used on people that are seen as threats to politics or government for their personal gain.
