Another idea for the Anonymous Monk function: Perhaps only registered users of a certain level can post as Anonymous Monk. Or this in combination with any number of the other things you've mentioned.

I personally like the AM, because it makes us a warmer friendlier place. Without it, we'd end up with a ton of throwaway accounts I bet. Unless we imposed a Wait Period, in which case our New Monk flow would slow to a trickle. I've tried a lot of other sites with discussion boards where you're supposed to get quick answers. I've never seen them work unfortunatly. The fact that you can have a reliable answer in 10 minutes here (or instantly in CB) probably keeps a lot of new guys coming back enough to join us.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't see any reason for a "named" user to be able to post anonymously. That would only encourage hiding behind AM to avoid downvotes.

      Agreed. This isn't slashdot. Potentially damaging information or some such shouldn't be posted here. We just want to write code and of course debate the nature of computing, etc... I was just addressing his point in case other Monks felt differently about the nature of apropriate content here.
