Loophole is to strong a word

Let's say I've got a picture that's in the public domain, and is in no way related myself, my family, or anyone I know (or anyone still alive, for that matter), and would be very relevant to an FPP i'm crafting. Problem is, I can't find it anywhere else on the internet. So, if I put the image up on a website that has no other content and was created for the purpose of showing people on metafilter this thing that is not mine, does it still count as a self-link?

Anonymous questions of the most mundane order

Is it me or are some people abusing the anonymous question loophole? [more inside]

A way to circumvent?

I recently posted an anonymous question to Metafilter (within the past week). I browsed to the 'New Question' page without thinking about the question limits because I had a new query, but to my surprise the page didn't restrict me from posting. A bug? A way to get around the question limit? Am I shortly going to be shot for pointing this out?

I behaved myself, but there seem to be loopholes

Having just made an FPP, I can still get to the posting page by pasting the "post_good.mefi" link. I can also put in any user id and it still gets me into preview. I didn't dare to hit post though to see if that works, but I thought I'd point it out.

How did these users sign up?

How did 17320 and 17319 get in? And what's up with this profile?
