Why cant guests anonymously post on Vanilla forums?
Why is this still not allowed in the year 2015? i dont know how credible this is, but i remember someone a while back explaining that this is disabled to discourage cyberbullying. Well I personally dont believe an open source software should be using a technical solution to a problem that can be solved by a site administrator with proper moderation. Several other message board softwares allow guest posting, and on vanilla there are very old add-ons that allow it as well (like anonymouse) however relying on those old-addons is a security issue because they havent been updated in years. With the growth of anonymous sites like Secret and Whipser, you would think Vanilla would like to catch on and see what web devs can come up with in terms of anonymous discussion, but instead we have to rely on a 5 year old add-on that has major security holes. Please consider opening up guest posting because it really should have never been disabled in the first place.
