in reply to Assigning unique identifiers within a discussion thread to each distinct anonymous commenter

Having read this thread, and having had some more time to ponder the subject a bit more. I'm kind of keen on the fact that PM permits anonymous posting. Some of the comments can break up what might otherwise be considered pretty mondane, or monotinous. In short; it can lead to an (interesting?) surprise. Sure, the priviledge can be abused. But what's the ratio? Is it really large enough to merit further changes to the system? I tend to liken the whole thing to the way most Mainling Lists handle TROLLS; they are simply ignored. At least with those who are seasoned members.

In summary; While I recognize that some AM's are TROLLS, and that can be annoying. I (personally) don't see enough merit to honour them with the time, and effort needed to further squelch their output.

On the upside; look at the length of this thread -- thanks PopeFelix :)
