Deanonymizing Monero

Hello to the Whonix Community.
Let’s discuss getting the best Monero’s anonimity.
There are attack vectors against Monero’s anonymity. Monero has been attacked in the real world, and the U.S. Homeland Security gave a $3 million contract to a blockchain analysis company Ciphertrace for Monero tracking tools they made.

/r/Monero bans critics who show ways of tracing Monero transactions, and its users believe LEA tools to trace Monero are fake. Most responses in /r/Monero anonymity threads are “you can’t see addresses in online block explorer so it’s safe” and “it’s good enough”.

Monero developers acknowledge potentially deadly anonymity issues with their protocol in the Breaking Monero video series but deny their practical threat.

/r/Monero users say sending xmr between multiple wallets makes it more anonymous. But there are articles that doing it can hurt our anonymity. And Monero users don’t agree how much to do it.

For example a previous method of churning is now considered unsafe but /r/Monero doesn’t discuss it

https://monero.stackexchange.com/questions/4565/what-is-churning/4568#4568

There is a current attack against churning in the articles below.

Not the developers or the community give a guide how to churn and use Monero for best anonymity.

/r/Monero is like religious thinks the crypto is perfect.

These are more attacks but there are even more threads about Monero issues

With these vulnerabilities how do we churn and use Monero for best anonymity?
