About option to anonymize users (deprecated for Elgg v3.x)

It is suggested to enable this option only on existing communities where users have already submitted content. For new communities it will no have any affect.

If enable the Privacy Notification plugin, some of the existing users may not accept the privacy notification, so by enabling the "Anonymize Users" option in plugin settings these users will not be visible and accessible from other users but their content will still be available.

Also note that some modifications may be required for anonymizing users on content of 3rd party plugins.
