It's too extreme to say anonymous comments have _absolutely no value_. Repeating VladimirSlavik's question "What happens if the anonymous reporter comes back to answer a question?" ...but maybe they're causing too much pain for the value they add.

Is the single character commenter back again? Does it look like the same person or a small number of people causing a problem? I'm wondering if my idea still looks like it would help:

Forbid anonymous users (identified by IP address) from making more than a few comments per day. It could show a message _"Thanks contributing to OpenStreetMap via notes. If you wish to add more, please create an account to identify yourself"_
