Internet Anonymity is Pure Fiction!

Internet anonymity is pure fiction. The TOR anonymity network and ALL commercially available proxy systems are easily hacked. Governments and Internet companies easily identify and track users' online activities. WordPress has identified my publishing group through TOR browser, and evidently sold our private information to hostile third parties.
To all Bloggers, Internet Users:

Be advised that Internet anonymity is pure fiction. The TOR anonymity network, based on onion routing and associated software, as well as ALL commercially available proxy systems, are easily hacked.

No matter where you live, or which browser you use, various government agencies and Internet companies (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, WordPress...) easily identify your device, physical address and all other details -- your online activities are tracked as soon as you log on to Internet.

If you live in the US, or other Five Eyes countries, remember this: "Almost Everyone Involved in Developing Tor was (or is) Funded by the US Government."

Your personal information are available via Google, Facebook, Microsoft, WordPress... search engines, Internet service providers, blog hosts... for a fee.

Based in different countries, my colleagues and I publish several progressive blogs, and have collected irrefutable evidence that our blog host (WordPress) has identified us individually through the TOR browser, and supplied/sold our private information to hostile third parties.

“The United States government can’t simply run an anonymity system for everybody and then use it themselves only. Because then every time a connection came from it people would say, “Oh, it’s another CIA agent.” If those are the only people using the network.”

—Roger Dingledine, co-founder of the Tor Network, 2004

Always tricky with anonymity but can you provide any legitimate proof beyond a claim and linking to old internet articles?
