in thread to distinguish between [Anonymous Monk]s in a thread, brand 'em

So you want to de-anonymize them within the thread, which --in my book-- is taking away part of their anonymous robes.

Its like coming in from the rain, your robes are wet, you're the Anonymous with wet robes in a room full of Anonymous

They'll dry soon enough

...almost-but-not-entirely anonymous.

All your base are belong to Anonymous Monk

Isn't the idea behind anonymity to hide your identity, not misrepresent your numbers?

This whole Anonymous Monk thing is like free speech: any restrictions just kill it.

And yet there exist limits on free speech , and they haven't killed it :)


A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
