    Personally, I dislike the notion of killing anonymous postings entirely, but I dread having the discussions devolve into "first posts" and long threads about natalie portman and grits.

    Without adopting a more complicated trust model, like the one used on Advogato [advogato.com], it seems like the only way to prevent abuse of the anonymous posting ability would be to ration it out to people that have already proven that they are valuable community members. You could use their karma rating, perhaps, to allow them a limited number of anonymous postings per month.
