I like the idea by @dieterdreist:

> An alternative idea could be to hide anonymous comments and/or notes from people that are not logged in (any logged in user could moderate to either delete them or make them visible). So vandals like this would not have the "satisfaction" of seeing the results of their actions.

Let's start replacing actual anonymous comments by something like "Anonymous comment only visible to logged in users.". You could still ask questions back to that anonymous user (just in case), and they could even add some further comments on their own. But other users won't be able to see them (including themselves). This is quite deliberate, if people want to see more, they should sign up.

Then there's the harassment topic mentioned above: once GDPR is in place, anonymous users also won't see which user is responding to their comments.
