As first noted by Daniel Hilgarth here, the Do I have to log in or create an account? section of the Stack Overflow FAQ needs to be updated to reflect the fact that anonymous users can no longer ask questions. As far as I can tell the regular folk can't edit this part of the FAQ, so I'd be much obliged if a dev did so.

I'm not advocating the account requirement, I'm merely advocating FAQtual accuracy :)

Done, thanks for the reminder, new text is:

        You can answer and suggest edits as an anonymous user, much
        like <a href="http://www.wikipedia.org/">Wikipedia</a>. There are some
        things you won&rsquo;t be able to do on the site without registering, such as vote or ask new questions.
        But it&rsquo;s <a href="/users/login">easy to register</a>.

You must log in to answer this question.
