I can see this turning into a very long node if we get into the netiquette, the AC, flammers, et al discussion, but I don't want to let this one go just yet...

You said:
While I support anonymity in general on the Internet, I see no compelling reason to offer monks a disguise so they can flame at will.
and I totally agree with that! As a matter of fact, just to set the record straight, my name is John Burbridge and I can be reached at (+55-11) 3744-1760 or "talk johnny@chthon.warp.psi.br". :o)

But I beleive strongly in anonimity and I think it is a matter which each individual user should have the right to opt for. Being known as BBQ or John makes absolutely no difference to me, but I know I does to a bunch of people. I think the idea of cutting off the Anonymous Monks sounds a bit ... err.. radical(?), and the only other imminent solution that I can think of is the IP posting. I agree that it doesn't solve the issue, but I think it helps.(This could be a pretty good poll question, btw)
