And expiriences and comments in that regard, and how limiting is it? Like; when I post here, I log in with a user, same as I do when doing my internet banking. Tails or not, wont that leave a trace since I log in with personal identification...?

And the choice of VPN for example, how to make it? NordVPN is located in Panama isnt it? Do we have any backstory on the people running it?

Its a very intresting topic, of which Im borderline criminally incompetent in.
When choosing a VPN always avoid those based in snooping countries like the UK/EU and USA, they are subject to the laws of those countries and will be required to keep logs.
Second, look for one that keeps no logs and adheres to it. If they have no logs they can't be seized by the NSA/GCHQ or other nefarious institutes!
It's worth spending some time researching the VPN's you are looking at, user feedback will give you the information you need.
There are several VPN's in South American countries that are worth looking at, Ivacy which I use, is based in Singapore and keeps no logs, there is other South East Asia countries that have VPN providers too, there is also African ones, but I know very little about those.
