Why & how to set up an non-corporate anonymous blogging hosting service

Why set up this type of blog services?

We heard the story of the Bristol Blogger - a political blogger who had been using a WordPress blog for a long time. They posted a blog that was critical about a person, who then complained to WordPress. WP removed the entire blog. After complaints, the blogs was restored, but the post in question was removed. The Bristol Blogger had no control over their own site, and data was removed from it.
We also heard about a Manchester based blogger who posted an item about somebody from Manchester University. WP passed on personal details about the blogger to the university.
So, the key questions are: who controls your data? Who knows who you are, and who do they pass that info onto?
