True, but unless you're someplace like Syria, I dont really see what using Tor is going to do that something like Porn Mode on Google Chrome wont.

Part of my paranoia comes from having been involved (as a victim) in a number of web site compromises. It's quite easy to feel utterly violated when a stranger gets access to detailed logs. I've even witnessed blackmail after a compromise before.
Fair enough, but I still dont see why something like Tor would be necessary. Its a fairly heavy-duty piece of software to protect against something where the risk is very small and can be reduced even further by being careful.

Again, if I'm not being too nosy, what do you fear would happen if your being here would become public knowledge?
I am as direct as a T-Rex with 'roid rage and about as subtle. It isn't intended to cause upset, I just prefer to talk plain. There are plenty of other people here who do the nice, polite thing much better than I can. I'm what you'd call a "problem dinner guest."
