Bitcoin activists propose hard fork to Bitcoin to keep it anonymous and regulation-free

Quote
The authors are particularly concerned about the Bitcoin Payment Messages system scheduled for release along with version 0.9 of the cryptocurrency. That mechanism would allow merchants to request payment from customers, rather than simply providing them with an address to send payments to. Payments would be completed using digital certificates owned by the merchants, and would contain customer and merchant metadata linked to specific transactions.

Questions: Has anyone seen this before? Does anyone have any good guides they know of for being anonymous with bitcoin? And is there a serious danger that bitcoin could be compromised by regulators?

They could lock down the places where you exchange fiat for BC that's about the only thing I can think of. But I'm not an expert.

If they do regulate the exchanges you'd just have to find someone to trade cash for BC Seth had such a guy at one point.
