Why They're Rotten
- They can often get in trouble by showing their IP address regardless of VPN, meaning that if they get a death threat, they could easily be found through their IP.
- They usually make wikis turn abysmal.
- They tend to be either trolls, vandals, or spammers.
- Some use VPN's to troll around or to evade their bans.
- Most of them are very biased and are terrible at making pages.
- Because of the reasons above, the wikis are only good if they are protected from anonymous users.
- They give innocent people who use an anonymous account a bad name.
- Some anonymous users don't have any of these qualities and are overall good people to have on wikis.
- Some even apologize for their behavior, like EliTheLooneyTunesFan2008 who started out as an anon on the Garbage Memes Wiki causing trouble there, but later apologized.
