I saw a thread about to many members and most of them only have 1 or 2 post and have not been active for years, reason is because most had a quick question. My idea is, is there some way something can be created so people can just submit a question without having to register and going through all the hassle and then just leave a blank account. Of course mods would have to keep an eye out for spammers but i still think its a good idea.

That'd give our mods a huge work rate, and bring our membership growth rates down, so do i think it's a good plan?...

I think that it could be a good idea. But make it so the posts will self delete with in a time limit. Such as two days.

Can we say "spam"?

We would be inundated by spam on a scale you have never seen before. Bad, bad idea.

defeats the purpose of just posting up a quick question
