in reply to Spam! Spam! Spam! Spam!

Why not just eliminate the Anonymous Monk user account? IMO, this is the obvious best solution to the problem of spam being posted on PerlMonks.

UPDATE: This little post of mine is currently Number 1 Worst Node of the Week and Number 2 Worst Node of the Month. J'accuse, PerlMonks! If my simple expression of an apparently unpopular (yet seemingly obvious) alternative way to cope with spam on PerlMonks is the worst thing that's happened here so far in August, then I declare discourse on PerlMonks much more f*d up than my post. I down-vote you, PerlMonks!

    Because many of the most interesting questions and lots of the best, most informative answers are posted by those choosing to do so anonymously.

    There should be no need to throw the baby out with the bath water.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

      The same people who are posting "the most interesting questions and lots of the best, most informative answer" can continue to do so using their registered accounts.

      Getting rid of the Anonymous Monk user account is throwing the bath water out with the bath water. There's nothing about the Anonymous Monk account that I like or wish to preserve. In my opinion, PerlMonks would be better if it were gotten rid of.

        On a lighter mood, definitely Jim you don't like super heros behind masks ... :). I appreciate them though.

        If you tell me, I'll forget.
        If you show me, I'll remember.
        if you involve me, I'll understand.

        By order of Jim?

        You are in the minority. Live with it.

    And if/when registered named monks or funny but named monks start posting 'junks'? What then would you do?
    Moreover, there are post that are so wonderful posted by anonymous Monks and one could only think, if only I know who posted that.
    At least I know that in perlguru forum, you can't post anonymously, yet, people still post junks. And I don't think there is a system in place to reap those in my little experience on that forum.
    So, Am with BrowserUk on this.
