What if CM left the anon feature but...

Only allowed so many anon uses per level?

Such as the higher your level, the more chances you can answer anonymously.
Max out at 10 (Hypothetically)

This would help those that really do need to answer or ask a question that they feel are private to them.

  • seems that the OP choosing if anon allowed on her question is a good way to tone down the anon crap

    and there not a simple program that would catch all the multiple accounts
    is it super hard to do??
    if there is more than one person in a home using same computer- then a person can request to admin to use same IP and exceptions can be made- and of course this would flag and multiples and someone that works for site would be able to easily check for any misuse

  • They'd just make more accts. I still think the only solution if they won't disable it completely is give us the option to allow anon replies to our questions, so they can only use it if we let them.

  • The problem is that our biggest anonotwat in the recent past was a level 50 so, she still would've been free to harass others.

  • I think the best way to deal with it is to allow the OP of a question click a box to enable anon answers (or disable- whichever is easiest to accomplish with programming).

  • AND what they need to do, instead of saying trolls will just do whatever anyway, is actually stay on top of things enough to catch the trolls - multiple accounts isn't allowed, for instance - so they need to be more adamant about enforcing their policies.

  • I like the idea of only allowing anon in certain categories, and with disabling it from questions when you make them.
