first, if half of what snowden claims is true, you have no anonymity online, period.
second, show me a single whistleblower that didn't tell his real name, that deserves any trust.
if what someone is saying, is true and dangerous to those in charge, saying your name and providing some credentials actually protects you - because
if they'll go after you, they'll just confirm that what you've said, is true.
true whistleblowers and people saying about important matters, are brave and tend to use their real names more often than not (they're usually
showing their faces after all). the whole "thank god i'm anonymous and you can't do anything to find me" attitude is a way of cowards spreading
lies, using whatever privacy they have left to fool people.
