Why does PerlMonks permit multiple visitors with the same username, Anonymous Monk, to post here? What purpose does a sophisticated voting system serve when so many "members of the community" post messages to PerlMonks using the same anonymous username?
To me, total anonymity—or, more precisely, shared, ambiguous and amorphous identity—doesn't jibe with the monastic ethos.
UPDATE: Ugh! I'm already being down-voted for having asked this earnest question. Please don't do that. PerlMonks Discussion should be the place on PerlMonks where one can ask questions and express opinions about the community openly and without fear of being silently down-voted into submission to a hegemony.
