To me, RFC: Hide Very Bad Answers From Visitors doesn't seem to have been as effective as it was intended... or monks are considering posts for reaping without allowing the hide-very-bad-answers to take effect.
I think we have enough measures to handle this.
The need for your plea in the first case, and the number of considerations of bad anonymous posts rather than letting them get de-emphasized properly, leads me to believe that the measures aren't sufficient, or aren't being used properly. Hence the impetus for my PMD.
Further, that doesn't address the other aspect: the "no, I'm the other anonymous monk" issue for following discussions. And a non-reversible, non-personal, but somewhat-uniquely-identifying hash seems a good way to solve that problem.
The latter problem has actually bothered me almost since I first arrived here, but it was never strong enough to be worth suggesting. But now that I've realized that the same solution will also help with the other issues I brought up, I thought it was worth discussing.
