You could NOT "mark this post" under pemungkah's proposal. It's NOT an OP, whereas the proposal says "only the first node in a new thread would have the option of setting this characteristic."

    That's just a question of granularity. My point is that it wouldn't stop Anonymous Monk from replying to anybody's messages (they could just post a new top-level node), but it would just stop them from being threaded in the correct place.

    use Moops; class Cow :rw { has name => (default => 'Ermintrude') }; say Cow->new->name
      True, but would making snide comments (or giving good advice/insights/code) in a node at the head of a new thread -- ie, a new OP, if I understand you correctly) offer AM the same gratification. I suspect that the workaround you've pointed out would NOT be attractive to the trolls... and less than useful to those who post valuable information, anonymously.

      Update: Amusingly, I got a 'tough beans' message when I tried to "Create" -- maybe the Monastery would be better off if whatever glitch caused that occured more often.

    Then the Anonymous Monk could reply to the owner of the thread in a different thread where he would not be the author...

      I guess our understandings of the OP (and/or the meaning of "thread") vary.
