Anonymous posting (here or anywhere else on Da Internet) is the default; it's extremely difficult to suppress without killing off almost all participation. On Da Internet, you are who you say you are; and if tomorrow you say you are someone else, nobody can prove or disprove it.
If a site does not allow "officially" anonymous posting, those who wish to post anonymously just create throwaway accounts. If the site requires email verification to create an account, the evil little villains just create throwaway email addresses.
So the chief point of Anonymous Monk is not to permit or condone anonymous posting. It's merely a small convenience: it makes it easier to decide who to ignore, downvote, or reap. If I see a post by this "author", I feel less inclined to approve it. And anything that makes the stack of paperwork go by more quickly is a Good Thing.
Feste: Misprison in the highest degree. Lady, cucullus non facit monachum. That's as much to say as, I wear not motley in my brain....
