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.

Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
<code> <a> <b> <big>

<h5> <h6> <hr /> <i>
<li> <nbsp> <ol> <p>
<small> <strike> <strong>
<sub> <sup> <table>
<td> <th> <tr> <tt>
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
