More things Anonymous Monk can't do:

Note that the inability to receive private messages means that Anonymous Monk will never get notifications from the system, such as when someone replies to one of his nodes, or when one of his nodes gets reaped or edited.

* Permissions on wikis are defined on a per-node basis. Currently, the permissions on the "public" wikis are set as follows:

    o read/edit some of the wikis on the site.* o post or update a book review or module review. o see node reps in the results of Perl Monks User Search.
    I updated the OP and added these 3 items (linking to your node for the wikis). I used ambrus' wording for the node rep.
    o change the interval of Recently Updated Home Nodes from the default +30 days. o appear in Monks Last Here.
    I had never seen those before (or the wikis either). How would I navigate to those? Are they buried in non-default settings?
    o use keywords. Both the Keyword Nodelet and Keyword Search are disabl +ed for Anonymous Monk.
    I didn't include that because it is in my "too many settings to mention for a summary" clause :)

    Thanks again.

      How would I navigate to those?

      The usual way is to scroll to the very bottom of Newest Nodes, where you see:
      "Or maybe you want to see Recently Updated Home Nodes".

      Monks Last Here appears to be an "orphan", so I probably shouldn't have mentioned it. ;-)

      use keywords. Both the Keyword Nodelet and Keyword Search are disabled for Anonymous Monk.
      I didn't include that because it is in my "too many settings to mention for a summary" clause :)

      Well, it's true that AnonyMonk can't ever see the Keyword Nodelet because he can't enable it in Nodelet Settings; but access to Keyword Search is not controlled by settings, so I don't think it falls under that clause. (Also, fwiw, it's possible — for sufficiently savvy AnonyMonks — to POST just like the form found in the Keyword Nodelet even without the nodelet itself; so to protect against this potential avenue for abuse, Anonymous Monk is also forbidden in the form handler code. This also falls outside Settings control, strictly speaking. In a nutshell: There's more to Keywords than just enabling the nodelet.)
