 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.

 (I accidentally removed the original post, re-adding!)
