Since the year 2015, we have had a major problem with anonymous users, who spam useless comments, vandalise, troll people and sometimes are just straight up...dumb. While the prescence of useful anons cannot be doubted, there are more disadvantages to advantages to letting anonymous users freely edit the wiki. Here are a few things to consider:
- Some anons know stuff that we don't and are useful sources of information. Disabling anons would mean taking away all of their future contributions as well.
- In the year 2016, there were more blocks than previous years combined and most of them were anons who troll and vandalise.
- Being anonymous means your IP can be tracked by anyone, which is dangerous.
- As stated before, most anons are troll, vandals, and spammers.
