*sigh* Actually, I don't really have any "inside information" about how anonymous access can be improved. The information I have about that came by virtue of paying attention. If you are curious about what is widely considered good and bad about anonymous access, just read some of the threads linked from this thread. I browsed a few of them recently. I was reminded of a lot of things.
I think it would likely be useful to start building up a list of bullet points about the good and bad of anonymous access. If you want to wait for tye to do it because he knows lots of secrets about that, then you are wrong and you'll be waiting a long time.
