I know how much some of you miss being able to post anonymously on here.

I am considering creating a new forum (subsection) of the site to allow this, but it would be under the following terms:

1) Only members could post and the forum would be invisible to anyone else.
2) Membership would be by request. If you don't want to see it don't join.
3) The forum would be closely moderated. My moderation - and that of Herby - would be ruthless, instant and with no appeal. Any criticism of moderation decisions would trigger an automatic ban.

What do you think?

If it only takes a few clicks on a keyboard, (I may be showing my total ignorance of what is required to set it up :smashPC ) why not just create the Forum anyway and see if anyone joins in. If they do, great :D . If not, :( it could always be removed.

I agree with Bill.
I think your caveats are draconian and would put people off.

Well, firstly Jim that is not what Bill said at all.

Secondly, if people can't behave then they can poke it. My ball, my rules. The abuse I had to put up with and deal with over the eight years this was an open forum with anonymous posting was ridiculous, and it is never going to happen again.




(You can blame primarily Longshanks - and his various alter-egos including NOS and the odious Maggie - for the demise of Seil Chat, which was of course what he was aiming for all along - that and the others who cheered him on from the sidelines - you know who you were)
