Says some activists?

Erwin Van Lun, founder of Chatbots.org,
avours a more drastic approach.

He says rather than creating tools to detect bots,
it should be humans who have to prove their identities
to use the internet.

"Governments are responsible for citizens and
issue them passports to travel the world.
They should also say, 'We are responsible for your behavior
on the internet, so we will issue you an internet passport',"
he says. "That's where it's heading." It's not so unlikely:
advocates of a more civil internet are already converging on this idea
as a way to discourage cyberbullying and other bad behavior.

From a New Scientist text about Criminal ChatBots.

To read it you either need to be a subscriber or a member of
their online followers that are for free but one only have access for
a week or so on certain texts for free and not the whole NS archive.

Here is the site about commercial legal chat bots that are for to
to help companies to give service to all the help seekers on advices
to find their products and so on

Yo ucan hear such chat bots if you make a phone call to some companies.
Pre recorded human voices that try to listen to you and connect you to the
right person if you give voice commands to them.

Which town do you want to travel too and from where .. kind of questions.

Here is the txt about saying goodbye to internet anonymity.
The real you: Say goodbye to online anonymity

Identity-tracking systems can have a chilling effect
on people's willingness to express themselves online.

In 2007, South Korea began requiring users of
the country's major websites to sign up with their
national identity number to post comments.

A study by Jisuk Woo at Seoul National University
found that the rate at which people posted comments
on the popular forum dcinside dropped precipitously
after the law went into force.

"Most users became afraid to write on online services,"
adds Chun Eung Hwi, a consumer rights campaigner in Seoul.
"They were reduced to passive readers and kept silent on public issues."

Yet the evidence for a fall in libellous or obscene comments was mixed.
A similar dynamic was evident at TechCrunch.
Though the quality of comments increased with Facebook integration,
their numbers decreased. Siegler pondered whether people
were censoring themselves.

The tracking devices use pattern recognition combined with browser
identity. How one set up the browser can be very unique for each
person so it gives clues to who is using the machine.

Pattern recognition is very evident even without using any AI program
just by reading others post one may get a hang on how they express
themselves and suddenly one realize. this can be somebody else
that I have interacted with before when they used another username
at the other Linux forum. Smile Many people remember my typical bad grammar
English and ask straight out. Is that you Nooby. Embarrassing indeed.

I use Google Search on Puppy Forum
not an ideal solution though

There was no anonymity for me at all in Internet. At one side - me, at another side - definitely not me. Between us - uglified turds which execute imitation of human language. Road signs give an important information to me. I have a license to execute persecution in regard to myself only.
