Attempted to read the "real" explanation, but could not get the page to "load"...(hung for a good while).
I'll give you "filled" crater...realizing your idea of "filled" and mine may vary significantly.
According to the surface elevation readings on Google Earth, the crater's "bottom" seems to be a short distance to the southwest of the lowest
elevation reading at the southern/southeastern rim of the "anomaly".
Anomaly low point ~ 2772', found at 70°41'90.64" S 48°15'09.13" E ;
Crater low point [that I was able to find] ~ 2746', found at 70°42'29.75" S 48°09'57.50" E
Moving directly "into" the anomaly from the "Anomaly Low Point", elevation graduates markedly, and with some general consistency moving to the edge of
the crater (northwesterly).
Guess what I'm saying/asking is - those dimensional readings don't seem to translate to a "collapsed side", in my opinion...
If you would care to share "where" I am misinterpreting the "data", I would appreciate it.

Okay - My bad! I see that you were responding to "the other" anomaly on the other side of the Mars-globe...
So...you're not saying the OPs pic is of a "filled crater".
On the other hand...I am finding no evidence (in the Google Earth elevational readings) of a side that has caved...(yet).
