I created a new topic in the "discussion" section of my project,
"runtimes", without being logged in.
Later the topic was attributed to the user "anonymous coward"
(which is ok, I suppose), but the content of the topic, i.e.
the text I entered, was empty or at least not visible. Everything
I entered was lost.
I had expected that the system either would accept the text being from
an anonymous user, or would ask me to log in, conduct the login,
and accept the entered text from the logged in user.
Looking into this further, I realized that the reason he's not seeing anything since anonymous posts are moderated by default. Perhaps instead of displaying a blank post, we should put up a notice that says "Post awaiting moderation" or "Pending moderation" or something like that...
