create-anonymous-text [87] (10) Recommended

    create-anonymous-text [87] (( text      : HOLLERITH;
                                  misc-info : ARRAY Misc-Info;
                                  aux-items : ARRAY Aux-Item-Input ))
            -> ( Text-No );

Similar to create-text, but the text is created the author field set to zero. Not even the server has a record of who created the text.

The original intended use for this call was for importing texts from other sources, such as WWW, FTP or Gopher, but some clients include explicit support for sending anonymous texts to a server.

It is only possible to send anonymous texts to a conference with the right flag bit set.

The only Misc-Info items valid for this call in the misc-info array are recpt, cc-recpt, bcc-recpt (introduced in protocol version 10), comm-to and footn-to.
