I understand the desire for an anonymous account -- it lowers the barrier of entry for one-off questions, and it probably helps with GPDR.

FWIW, here are two related discussions 1 2 from the SQLite forum and the forum of its related project, the Fossil SCM. Ever since they moved from the mailing list to a forum hosted and developed in-house, anonymous posting was allowed, subject to pre-moderation. Some people did't like anonymous posts and replies, but so far the ability to post anonymously has been judged useful enough to stay. I realise that the more "democratic" PerlMonks as a whole has to pay somewhat bigger price for that, since the SQLite community never sees what their moderators don't approve; on the other hand, every time I post anonymously, an SQLite forum moderator gets an extra piece of work.

I post both here and over at the SQLite forum when I have a spare minute or two and want to feel helpful. This total absence of barriers between me and helping someone is great; I would like to preserve it, if possible.

P.S. Yes, the "tough beans" anti-spam feature is annoying, but it does beat the alternatives.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
