to 1. I fully agree,
but to the 2nd, why don't you post as Anonymous then? so all XP to that node would be wasted, so you wouldn't get any, but still you could say who you are?? :-)

    Why being anonymous? OK, you said you could say who you are but it means that you need to be logged off also. Why not make it simpler and stay logged in?
    Remember that some monks waste lots of votes for the Anonymous posts which have no value whatsoever also. Having this feature would educate them about the voting value and IMHO, be less confusing.

    Update:
    jcwren/little: in case of misunderstanding, I was not saying that Anonymous Monks posts usually have no value, but simply that I do not need/want to be anonymous when I post. If I have a controversial idea, either I will post it with my name, either I will keep it for myself. The only benefits of having anonymous posts is, IMHO, for Monks who want to "taste" what PM is before signing up. As for "Bad Monks", I think that there should be some kind of voting by older Monks implemented, so that Vroom could "excommunicate" them from PM.
      so we need a small radio button beside the submit one saying "mark as non votable" ? which in my opinion equals to posting as anonymous, while I think all of us should have gotten that Anonymous Monk with thousands (ups, er hundreds yet) of writeups didn't get any XP yet ? how can that be?

      Have a nice day
