The Dangers of The Internet

So you think you're safe on the internet? Wrong!

Anon. One of the most powerful people on the internet. But just because it has a lot of penises (over 9000) doesn’t mean that someone won’t be able to single one out and chop it off. You may think that you’re anonymous on 4chan, as well as many other places on the internet, but there are ways people can and will figure out.

"We gonna find you." - Antoine Dodson
Between most sites knowing your IP (on top other things) and probably several other like Facebook selling off your personal information for top dollar, you can’t escape. But if all you’re doing is looking at pron, you should be fine. Maybe. Or you could be starring in it yourself.
"Everyday, about 50,000 new men are trying to get naked," he says. "What we're doing is selling the naked men to a couple of websites--it's an investment for us."

When users flag someone enough times for indecent behavior (by clicking a button), the offender is automatically transferred to a partner site. Thanks to deals with adult dating services like FriendFinder.com, Chatroulette is earning cash hand over fist from the referral traffic.
Tldr; if you’re a guy going on chatroulett naked, they’re going to send you to a porn site and try to sell you off. If you’re watching porn one day and say “hey wait a second, those are my testicles” you might have been a victim. You might also be gay for looking at videos of naked men.

But if you really aren’t afraid of getting caught (or sitting behind enough proxies, international laws, firewalls, suits of kevlar, and any other sources of protection) you can go and do something epic like this.  Ok so some guys hacked a school,  bumped up the lunch prices, expelled some kids, and sent out messages that will probably only confuse parents.  Call me when you get into the Pentagon.

    personally i use manycam + an animated gif, to spoof a webcam for chat roulette, so i don't have to worry about that. as far as anonymity is concerned, tor+firewall+private mode in firefox, is all i really need for most things. In general I agree though that people aren't as anonymous as they might think.

    But that's the beauty of the internet, is seeing someone who thinks they're anonymous say something stupid and get ripped to shreds.
