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 . . .
I agree with Jim and ELISHEV, and I think this question is more relevant than what others think!
Why not let all registered monks vote on the question?
But only 1 vote from 1 registered monk, or to give the current hierarchy their just due, the monks level is counted as number of votes. ( So a Pope's vote counts as 28, etc. ). But only 1 positive/negative post per monk should count (first/last?)Let me just say the tone of many posts are changed by comments from the 'Anonymous Monk'.
I have learned a lot from registered monks, since they usually spend the time/energy to make sure what they say/code works and is relevant to the topic. I can't say that about the 'Anonymous Monk' comment.
