Anonymous Monk's Logging
Hmm, I don't see a compelling reason to keep Anonymous Monk around -- but I don't see any good reason to get rid of it, either.
I think we ought to take a hint from comp.lang.perl.misc in discouraging from post-but-don't-read users, who ask "Please e-mail me the answer because I don't check here," because that defeats one purpose for the site. It would also be nice to encourage people to repeat questions, and to post them in the most appropriate sections, but that might be a lot to ask.
Assuming vroom provides good guidelines on which (if any) writeups to make disappear, those of us with editorial powers can get rid of the worst stuff. (The only thing I've seen that I'd get rid of was the reply to reptile's post. And a lot of blank nodes, but that's a different story.)
If things get out of hand, maybe we should worry about it. Until then, let's worry instead about improving the signal.
