Comment (by zoonini):

 Here are some things to consider when moving forward:

 - We'll need to select an email address to use with the new account. This
 may be either a new one, an existing one, or a new alias. (We should also
 bear in mind that this will be easy to change later on.) The same address
 can be used within Help Scout to send moderator emails anonymously from
 - We'll may want to figure out how to to turn off the automated emails
 that will be sent to this new account if someone @-mentions it in the
 thread. This would require a code solution, unless we just filter them out
 in Help Scout.
 - We'll want some way to alert moderators that there has been a reply to
 an anonymously moderated message so that any mod – not necessarily the
 original mod who posted in the thread – can respond to follow-ups as
 needed. Perhaps this could be a Slack ping, similar to when moderators are
 pinged in IRC.
