Does jenda's suggestion, at Re^2: to distinguish between [Anonymous Monk]s in a thread, brand 'em, remove the basis for this objection?

Please, consider carefully, this is NOT -- IMO -- a restriction of any individual's right to annonymity*1; rather, it is an internal, encrypted (non-transparent) means to allow the individual to retain his/her annonymity, while allowing the rest of us to distinguish among AMs -- without in any wise knowing their actual identities

.

*1 OK, conceeded: it might be viewed as a limit on a writer's ability to perform a (harmless and highly illustrative) jape such as appears well down, at Re^4: to distinguish between [Anonymous Monk]s in a thread, brand 'em ...Re^3: to distinguish between [Anonymous Monk]s in a thread, brand 'em, but I would (and do) argue that such a limit is insignificant, in as much as an alternate method (immediately below) to create the same illusion/illustation is readily available

This is Comment 1. It's actually devoid of substantive content but is being extended (well beyond reason) in order to enhance this illusion -- namely, that this an an actual node.reply

Contradictory Comment 2 or "I don't agree that the above lacks substance. It appears to /me to contain in excess of 180 characters, some of them, perhaps, unique within that node and certainly not insubstatial."reply

Comment 3. The above completely lacks substance and is completely without any reference to Perl. Thus, I think it should be reaped immediately without recourse to consideration or voting.reply

And besides, ww is all wet! H/She knows that any preference for an absolutist construction of freedom of speech in los Estados Unidos is subject to counter-construction by SCOTUS. For example, consider:
  1. one.
  2. TWO.
  3. Tres.
  4. der vierte!
