OK but this is posing theoretical problems in the event of a ratcheting up of hostilities. I agree it's worth thinking about, because this might be regarded as inevitable in the long run. If we picture what abuse _might_ happen e.g. by a disgruntled blocked user, with sufficient determination to mess things up... _all_ anonymous features look pretty untenable actually. 

Or rather we would have to move towards a wikipedia's approach to anonymity, which is to display IP addresses, thus making un-logged-in users actually _less_ anonymous than logged in users.
