    The argument is simple:

    1. Knowing the identity of a reporter is immaterial to the substance of the report. The reported comment, vote, thread, etc. is a violation or it is not. The status of that violation does not change if it was reported by Bob vs. Alice.
    2. Knowing the identity of a report can only possibly introduce bias in how mods respond to reports. Mods should be objective.
    3. There is no problem that requires knowing the identity of a reporter.

    Any potential abuse has been now curbed by limiting reports to 10/day/person. Additionally, a "reason for report" feature will be implemented in the future. This objection falls under point #3:

    There is no current problem that requires knowing the identity of the reporter.

    A survey.

    Not sure what would make a vote official. However, despite having a current majority opinion in favor of anonymity, bsh1 has arbitrarily decided that "not enough people have weighed in" and suggested I "identify other voices who share your views on the subject."

    It is a crap shoot as to whether bsh1 will honor whatever this reveals.
