- I think guest postings are absolutely crucial.
- "Long time pseudonyms are problematic for many reasons." [1]
- One who is interested
in Tor, is interested in anonymity and abstains more likely from pseudonyms.
- People start getting interested in a forum using the guest accounts. After a while or after they got annoyed by trolls faking their name, they register.
- Most .onion boards allow guest postings. Also the i2p forum allows guest postings.
- You get much more activity.
- Much more one time contributions.
- Wikipedia grew with guest postings.
- If you do it well, you won't run into trouble with spam, just like the examples I stated above.
