I DON'T want to see the ability taken away to post anonymous notes.
However, I WOULD like to see a way for people to post a note with validation
that it is truly from them. Therefore, I have a proposal that you can post
to the design list *IF* you can figure out an easy way to implement it...
Proposed, Times submissions will be validated byt the TIMES staff for a fee
of 5 gold. This validation will consist of all validated submissions being
a separate section and the name/id of the poster will be placed at the end
of the article as follows
Jame Retief[p4f] <TIMES validated posting>
Such postings would probably have to be done through a processor of some
kind to allow use of the unit id and password. Perhaps a format such as
begin TIMES p4f
<... text of article ...>
In this way 'regular' submissions might or might not be true.
In addition, people or alliances could dislaim responsibility for all
non-validated messages if they wanted to.
