Create a public guest account without registration?

I’m currently setting up BugNET 1.5 as a public and internal bug tracker.
It is required that any visitor of the site can create issues (and add comments but nothing else) without registration (guest role) as I know that most of our users are just too lazy to create an account.
While it is easily possible to set a project’s access type to public and also to create such a guest role with the appropriate permissions I just don’t know how to give this role to every visitor of the site automatically. Is that possible at all?

Thanks in advance!

You can create an account named guest and display the credentials in the welcome message of BugNET.

Hello dubeaud,
thanks for your response. I've thought of that too but don't know how to prevent people from changing password/email of this guest user.

Without writing code, you could disable password reset in the membership section of the web.config, this would disable password resets for all accounts though.
Code would have to be written to do anything beyond that to specifically disallow password changes of one account.
