Oh I agree 100% ! It all depends on a persons use case scenario and what is at risk.
A VPN is good, Tor is good, etc. if all a person wants to do is hide their usage from the casual observer
and avoid the Tech companies and marketers tracking and dossier building. But to be truly anonymous requires a great deal of effort and 'tech savvy'. The slightest little slip up can reveal the 'man behind the curtain'. Take Ross Ulbricht as an example!
You are not anonymous when you are online, even when using privacy tools like Tor, Bitcoin or a VPN. This is a myth. There are a lot of publications on this. Here is http://anonymity-in-bitcoin.blogspot.com/2011/07/bitcoin-is-not-anonymous.html for example.
