In hindsight, perhaps I was suggesting we abandon the current conceit and adopt a new one.
If you want to change it, you should point out exactly what goes wrong and how your new concept would solve this. And discuss about the drawbacks of your concept. Simple stating "anonymity is bad" and "we need change" is not enough.
and btw.: I like the current way the monastery works
How about we pretend instead to be politicians in the government of a representative democracy?
You mean we should pretend to be incompetent in all areas? Except in filling our own swiss bank-accounts by selling the interest of the public to well-paying lobby-groups? I don't see how this can improve this site...
