in reply to Having our anonymous cake and eating it too

Would an account option to hide Anonymous Monk posts be a possible solution? I'm still not sure what problem we're trying to solve here, but I thought I'd pass that idea along.

Like nodes below a set level (I think mine is 10), the AM posts might show up as collapsed blocks. Hmm .. but the replies to AM would still show through.

I don't mind AM posts myself, and have posted anonymously on occasion. :)

    I suggested in my reply to tye that maybe artificial downvotes associated with a per-user blocklist might be a cheap and easy way to do this. Threads just stop rendering with the "below your threshold" message when they hit someone in your blocklist; you're free to open up that link if you want to keep going.
