I would suggest the addition of a members-only subforum for those things we do want to keep private, but otherwise leaving it as it is. The Aircraft Ranking Library and Essays sections in particular should not be locked.

I'm torn both ways, but I think a subforum, like a private Bar would be best, though I recognize it's not a good fit as any thread and cause people into drifting into mentioning things that could be held against them. I hate to think of it having to be all or nothing regardless.

I myself spent a great deal of time lurking unregistered on here, Warships1 and Bob Henneman's board and most likely wouldn't be posting now if they'd been locked away from me with a registry requirement (As much as I've wanted to, I've never gotten around to registering and lurking on the Warship Projects board because of that fact).

I do strongly recommend people who use their name on here change their handles (I toyed around with doing the opposite a year or so ago, but decided against it). Even if it's to one that is associated with you, it nevertheless gives you some measure of anonymity.
