Is Internet anonymity ever a good thing?

While researching some art subjects, I came across this totally fascinating presentation comparing the custom of routinely wearing masks in ancient Venice to Internet anonymity.

Personally, I've always felt there are benefits to Internet anonymity that outweigh the cons. If there is truly bad behavior, the user and should be tracked down and sanctioned. This is the first time I've ever seen any scholarly writing on the subject.
