My sister was thinking of whistle blowing. It was really more of an incompetence thing than anything really serious.

She asked me how to do that anonymously. I thought about it a minute. She's email savvy, but not tech savvy... All those anonymizers can be tricky, and who knows which have been compromised... Just seemed like a lot of hassle.

Put it on paper and drop it in the mail.

but even snailmail requires careful attention - fingerprints, handwriting, phrasing -and- printers can be identifiable, in addition to hints given by postmark. of course it all depends on the level of attention you think someone will give to tracking you down...if someone is going to put the effort to find you through the tor network, they're likely to be able to use the above to find you through mail too.
