> Is the single character commenter back again? Does it look like the same person or a small number of people causing a problem? 

No, it looks like a different issue.  The occurrences that caused this issue to wake back up again were examples of straightforward trollery in the Netherlands.   I don't want to go into much more detail to avoid bringing them more attention.

> It's too extreme to say anonymous comments have absolutely no value.

Maybe, but only just.  About the only thing I could get from one would be "maybe I need to take a detour and see what is really there".  I believe that I could count on my thumbs the number of times I have found anonymous note comments useful.
