> There are some occasions where it would be valuable for a moderator to
> have the ability to post anonymously in the support forums.
> Having this functionality would offer individual moderators some
> protection from being contacted directly in Slack or "followed home"
> outside the forums.
> This would in turn reduce the potential for harassment of moderators,
> which has occurred before, and which has discouraged some folks from
> moderating more actively.
> It would also provide a unified voice to help better educate and
> familiarize posters with the forum guidelines, and also encourage more
> replies to remain public.
> Posting anonymously could be **optional** – and other moderators would
> still be able to see who made the post, in case any follow-up is needed.
> Attaching a quick mockup below for one idea of what this could look like
> on the posting side.
