in reply to Restrictions of the Anonymous Monk

Awesome work, toolic+++++++++!!!

One interesting little exception worth noting, however...

  • send and receive private messages

Anonymous Monks can in fact send private messages to the gods via the facility in Retrieving a forgotten username or password. (It's for getting help resolving login issues.)

Also, I think this is not quite right:

  • search for your old nodes

Non-logged-in users (that is, Anonymous Monk) can indeed search for posts by Anonymous Monk. In the other items, "you" refers specifically to the collective Anonymous Monk, so it would here as well.

What is the sound of Windows? Is it not the sound of a wall upon which people have smashed their heads... all the way through?

    I was hoping experienced monks, like you, would help me more clearly define these actions. I had no idea about the private message capability.

    Regarding searching for old nodes, what you said is what I meant to say. If I don't login and then post something, and you don't login and then post something, there is no way to distiguish the author of your post from the author of my post. Both posts are from the same author, namely Anonymous Monk.

    I will update the OP (somehow) using the information you provided.
