Many anonymous applications offer unconditional anonymity to their users. However, this can provoke abusive behavior. Dissatisfied users will drop out or liability issues may even force the system to suspend or cease its services. Therefore, controlling abuse is as important as protecting the anonymity of legitimate users. However, designing such applications is no sinecure.
