Recently we've seen an upsurge in Monk Junk. By that I mean, we've had a lot of Anonymous Monks
posting messages that are either trolls, non-Perl questions (not even by a long shot) or in the wrong section. I won't link to any examples, for they are plentiful and most monks here know what I'm talking about.
I suggest we (and by 'we', I mean Iron Fist
) allow Anonymous Monks
only the right to post top-level1
nodes in Seekers of Perl Wisdom
. The reasoning for this is simple: most AMs are hit and run; they ask a question, wait for the reply and don't come back (either that, or they register an account). They don't need access to other sections. Most - if not all - of the other sections are community-oriented. An Anonymous Monk would, for instance, have no reason to post to Discussions
, since (s)he's not actually part of the community.
 They can of course reply to any node, but posting top-level nodes would be confined to SOPW.
