Truly non-authenticated users should be able to post

And remain anonymous in the list

There you go … it does seem to work !

The email address is kept as a placeholder for an account and can be claimed later. I think that it may be necessary to claim the account in order to unsubscribe from notification messages to the list but those notifications should, in the first instance:

A special placeholder account which is created automatically by the system for email integration

  • No email digests are ever sent
  • Automatically watches all messages it participates in and receives notifications of replies
  • May reply via email to notifications
  • Username and Name are automatically picked
  • Account may still register with the same email and “take over” the staged account.
  • Forgot password will do nothing …when you attempt to send a password reset to a staged account
