Of course /bare works for Anonymonk. You just linked to the gates, which is cached and isn't a great place to start a /bare session from your cell phone anyway.
I don't read nodes much from my cell phone (I used to read them quite a bit from my Zaurus but it is well into "end of life" mode now). But I think you'd want to start a node-reading /bare session somewhere like http://www.perlmonks.org/bare/?node=Newest+Nodes;nn_hide_types=note,user
It would be good if /bare Newest Nodes would automatically skip showing new replies to new threads (and just show new replies to old threads). I previously tried to get a small enough /bare version of Recently Active Threads but it was still way too much HTML (even though the results didn't look all that big) for the small clients I tested it on.
