It’s long been assumed that trolls are attracted to anon. I am dubious because this would be illogical on the trolls part- mods/ volunteers (I think) are able to identify the account behind each anonymous post, it is also often obvious to us ordinary mortals when troll-ery is at play.
What if we’ve got this the wrong way around, what if the anon function is at fault? Perhaps anon is in fact causing the development of trolls?

If you removed anonymous you'd just have 'MassiveBongRips69420' making posts instead until he was banned, then he'd remake with a temp email address.

Or ‘I lovesexcywamen’ making posts about love stories that never happened.

There was once a horridly obese grotesque creature and it laid a stinking egg. Out hatched a troll.

Or maybe all of the trolls would just dry up. Think about it, if you get rid of most trolls, you get rid of jobs at TSR HQ, it’s not in the interest mods internet. Chickens that are sensible don’t vote for Christmas.

( I think I’ve just come up with a conspiracy theory)

Some animals are clever, so potentially.

Honestly, it would be funnier if anons don't exist and you get weird usernames to take their place. I'd be able to rate them in terms of creativity.
