I just had a great idea. We should encourage anonymous users to always sign their comments with something like "-X172", because most pages with them are full of confusion and people wondering "Oh, were you talking to that person? Sorry..", "You mean the third or fourth anonymous user?", referring to them by the time their comment was posted.. etc.
How this could be done, I dunno, post something to the front page, or edit it into "Ed, Edd n Eddy Wiki:Article Comments".
