Funny; this topic coming up on the heels of this node: Reputation and Accountability.

Personally, I think Anonymous Monk has a role here as much as anyone. As mentioned there are many good reasons seasoned Perl mavens might post anonymously, as well as registered users, and those that haven't or may not register.

Even with the ability to post anonymously, there continue to be a huge number of registrants daily. I don't know how many registered monks there are, but the number must be quite high by now. <anyone know?>

There are online communities that require registration prior to posting, but PM has succeeded famously with its friendly and come-as-you-are attitude. Might be a shame to rock that boat.

[choroba]: Also, try asking at IRC
[usemodperl]: corion baby you have done nothing of the sort
[usemodperl]: asking how to download from cpan with core perl via http is unreasonable???
[Corion]: usemodperl: No, asking is not unreasonable. Insisting that it must always keep working for you is unreasonable.
[Corion]: But again, you haven't explained why your users need to download, or why they need to download via http, or why you can't host the SSL-stripper yourself.
[choroba]: Wait a second. Does shutting down search.cpan.org mean the cpan clients can no longer use their urllist?
[usemodperl]: i'm under no obligation to explain myself mommy, and i'm not insisting, just asking a simple question
[Veltro]: So, I'm confused on the matter actually. There are locked-down computers, but they need updates. How does that work? Isn't that contradictary?
[usemodperl]: EXACTLY
[usemodperl]: and the https only situation makes it even worse
