Cyber investigation and anonymity

Been a long time since I last heard of anonymity; I nearly thought it was a buried issue, but US Government policy seems to stir the matter again. The approach is definitely threatening liberties, plus technically and financially I wonder if it is really viable. Can't police forces be used differently? "Gov't Says Second Life + Online Anonymity = Terrorism" (7 February 2008)

not sure to agree with the comments that other jurisdictions are less protective, unless by jurisdictions the author thought of some particularly problematic countries... "California Appeals Court Supports Right To Anonymous Posting" (7 February 2008)

and "One Way To Reveal Anonymous Posters: Subpoena The Sites They Read" (30 January 2008)
