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.
