in reply to RFC: Purpose of Robes in Monasteries

I completely completely support Anonymous Monk++ because the pros are so much more important than the cons.

Pros
  • Anon knows more than any of us. (Many knowledgeable people > you.)
  • Freedom: anon fears no social repercussions and thus will speak with a freer tongue in politically charged situations.
  • Anon is the gateway drug to the crack of PerlMonks. (Easy for new lusers.)
Cons
  • It can be hard to make sense of threads with 5 instances of anon responding. (It helps if you add least add some kind of handle, but whatever.)
  • Easy to confuse with AnomalousMonk because I'm old and my eyes are bad.
  • Spam
  • Sniping

    Putting the following snippet in your On-Site CSS Markup (Display Settings) may help distinguish:

    a[href="?node_id=961"], a[href="?node=Anonymous%20Monk"] { color: #c000a0; }

    (Feel free to use a different color, if you don't like pink :)

    Caveat: Attribute Selectors may not work with older browsers.

      Thanks for the tip, I didn't even know you were here before!

        Anonyrnous is a sneaky one, but he didn't get past me, this works even with old browser
        .node-from-961, .nnt-author-961 { background-color:Yellow; color:Black; }
