If that's the case, don't put anything identifiable in your profile.

You look pretty unidentifyable now on your profile. Assuming you have stuck with TOS, you should not have anything on your posts to tie you to any of your web propeties or indeed anything real world.

Of course, the gov could just get your ISP records :)

Ya, data retention laws in some countries, require us to keep all accounts and log files for a min of 3 years.

Wow - really? What countries?

I don't pay much attention to my logs, deleting them whenever they get too large. Maybe I'm being dense for doing so.

The EU has a some guidance towards member states to have their "telcos" retain their logs for 12 to 36 months. AFAIK member states are expected to convert that into local law.
Now, as far as I know that applies to "service providers" as in ISPs, phone companies etc. not so much individual web sites.

Still, it is a good idea to keep your logs about for a bit, esp if you have user generated content that might eventually trigger law enforcement reaction as not being able to say "who did it" might end up you being the one that is eventually in trouble for some illegal content.
Let's not forget that e.g complaints passed through interpol are very slow in reaching you (many months).
