To be perfectly honest, I never had a need for Anonymizer services, and always wondered who could possibly be that paranoid. However, all became clearer to me when I did find this story of a “former” Anonymizer (**NOTE** Please note comment from Lance Cottrell, Chief Scientist of Anonymizer.com below) client; I say “former” because the client is now in jail. After reading the story it appears that Anonymizer wasn’t so anonymous after all.
