I think we should look at this from the perspective of, "What is the point of the Perl Monastery?" I think of it as a place where people interested in Perl can ask each other questions, be creative (writing poetry and obfuscated code), and learn from each other. For this purpose anonymity (sp?) makes no sense. However this site has one major advantage over other Perl sites... people who know perl. I think that this would be a great place for newbies to come and ask questions of the Monks. For that, there is no reason to force them into an identity. That said, my proposal would be to retain Anonymous (but don't call it Anonymous Monk... come up with some other names and have a poll or something...) but only allow Anonymous to post questions, and not to reply or comment on other peoples nodes. I think that would prevent excessive noise without damaging the spirit of PerlMonks.org
