in reply to Assigning unique identifiers within a discussion thread to each distinct anonymous commenter

I think it'd be nice to have a semi-unique identifier, as it'd greatly improve the readability of a thread. It's quite confusing when there are several different 'anonymous' posters. It shouldn't be anything more complicated than e.g. a hash of identifiers (browser string, incoming IP, etc.).

That way you maintain anonimity/unregistered posting, but allow a conversation between several different anonymous people.
