The ease of login creation isn't so much the issue IMHO. I know that I visited PM several times over several months before creating my account. When every Tom, Dick and Harry's website requires or requests an account for use, most neither needing it nor providing anything useful for doing so, some induhviduals (YT included) eschew obfuscating their lives with excessive underused accounts.

in thread Beware the Trolls!
Perhaps one means of reducing truly Anonymous Monk posts
would be to have an input field(defaults to Anonymous Monk)
where the poster could input their email address. Thus
allowing easier tracking and ownership of questions etc.
by the monastery and the user themselves. And of course perhaps after making any AM post (esp. one with an email address), a friendly message about account creation and
benefits could be displayed...
