Well, Anonymous *should* have Access contents information and View  
permissions. It is the Zope default. If you want to lock down your  
Plone site, removing those permissions from Anonymous at root or  
portal level is *not* the way to go (and it doesn't even work  
either!). The only sensible way to manage rights in a Plone site is  
by workflow.
