"Anonymous" means anonymous, just like "ignored" means ignored. Being here awhile, you get to know some of the regular Anonymous Monks, like that tool-bag who likes to post big "helpful" link dumps. I mostly just ignore them, like P3N15 enlargement spam and such, but they have every right to post anonymously. An opt-in checkbox to hide all anonymonk comments would be nice, though.
