    Hi,
    i just thought a good way to increase the number of users would be to maybe have a small section that allows guests or unregistered visitors to ask questions and get answers. I see this on Toms Hardware and Free Download Manager forum and its pretty cool. You can wait around on the page for your answer or go ahead and register. Might increase the number of visitors to the site?

    I think it's enough that one can browse the whole forum without registering, I know a forum where you can browse/click on 10 threads then you see a message "you have exceeded the amount of threads you can view as a guest please register to continue browsing the forum". Having that in mind, I think Wilders is generous to non registered users/readers.

    No.

    Nothing good as more bad in that "idea". Multiple accounts even should be barred from persons wanting to use "multiple" personalities, IMO.
    Except that would be quite strict and against to some ideas of freedom. So I am not totally against that, only it being wrong from the point of that everybody should stand behind their words as real persons too.

    To have someones spread their words without any kind of responsibility. No.
