I'm still quite new and learning, so any info would be most appreciated.
Make yourself a completely new identity, and make sure the alias for that identity is a completely random name, that has no personal attachments to you. The more you provide false information the better, as long as you remember the false information, and make sure not to get caught up in a lie. Next step I would take is to get a vpn so that people would not directly obtain my IP address.
Also, keep in mind if you go through a site such as facebook, I would make a new facebook account purely for that.
