Monks with control over Anonymous?

Over the last few weeks I have seen a number of comments by Anonymous monks that are wrong, but stated as fact. This could be very misleading to the person asking the question.

So a solution to this might be to have all the registered monks over a certain rank have access to modify any Anonymous answers. Also maybe a way to delete the node if is blank or competely irrelevant would be nice.

Just a thought.

    Good idea! Or have a node be auto-deleted if it hits below a level of reputation... Say -5?

    # Trust no1!
        I think Anonymous Monk votes should be votable on like any other. There are some quite good things posted occasionally (as well as a lot of complete crap!).
        The less anonymous among us should be able to have some influence on whether an AM post is considered informative or actually is complete rubbish. Just as we can for the logged in users.
        Unless the voting system is merely for 'give user xp' which seems a little trivial.
        It should be possible to only view nodes with a reputation > 2, for example, to only get the better (or more popular at any rate) nodes.
        Actually some of that is in the works..., and once 0.9 core is complete and stable we'll have a new improved unix-type permissions system on a per node basis.
