This Wikiwhiner might want to read up on the OSI model. Conveniently, there's a Wikipedia article on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSI_model > An authenticated network and an anonymizing network are mutually exclusive. True enough, but to make it clear, an anonymizing network is not exclusive with an authenticated application. (Not necessarily so, anyway. I haven't checked into TOR, but there's no good reason an HTML hidden field couldn't provide session continuity for an anonymous web surfer.) -- There are no bad teachers, only defective children.
