For me it literaly means "without a name" and you stick a name on the AM.

Sorry, but "Anonymous Monk" is already a name. Just as "The artist formerly known as Prince" is a name. Even "He who must not be named" is a name. In legal cases, "Mr X", "Ms J", "Baby P", "Corporal N" and "Private Y" have all been considered perfectly acceptable concealers of identity in courts of law. You would have PM act to a higher standard to satisfy your "beliefs"?

The simple fact of life is that anonymity at PM is a sham. There are a bunch of Gods here that can and do use their privilege to see through that sham. Which makes your arguments, arguments in favour of a purer kind of sham.

And when reasoning becomes devoid of logic, we move into the realms of belief. You are expressing the opinion that your beliefs should be imposed upon everyone here at PM.

In this world there are those who reject modern medicine in favour of snorting ground up Rhino horn or Tiger penis. There are still others that reject even simple procedures like blood transfusions. Which is fine when it is their own lives, but when they risk those of their children we can and do intervene.

You are talking about your idealogical preferences. Do you know the difference between an idealist and an extremist?

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
