    That is kinda rediculous ?? why have a anonymous service if you can't be anonymous while using it ??

    Seems to me it's more to protect what your doing from prying eyes, not who you are. Your ISP (and them) both know who you are and your IP, but they won't be able to tell what files/data your accessing/downloading as it will be all encrypted.
