Anonymity is not a crime.

Just because some speech is anonymous, doesn't mean it's not valid. Nor does it mean that the speaker doesn't have rights.

@Matt_Noyes @ntnsndr "In the mid-1930s, the US government provided affordable loans for the creation of electric-utility co-ops to provide power in regions where privately owned utilities wouldn’t invest. Before long, as much as 75 percent of the country’s landmass had service through these locally owned and governed co-ops."

Because the "free market" is so efficient :)
