While i am willing to conceed the possibilty I have to disagree. The "hacking/cracking" comunity in general isnt stupid. Yea it has its dumbasses but every group does. If they were run by law enforcement there would be more busts come about because of their use. Somebody would figure it out. Or when someone got busted and found out that the "annonymous remailer" they used was run by law enforcemnt they would spread the word. AFAIK in court they not only have to disclose evidence but dont they aslo have to explain how they got it?
I'm curious in my paranoid mind exactly how many of these 'anonymous remailers' and 'anonymous proxy servers' are run by law enforcement?
