I can certainly see the arguments against it (potential for flaming, etc), but I think some of us might find it helpful. I have seen a number of occassions now where someone wanted to discuss a particularly important or embarrassing health problem on the board, but do not because we can't start a new username or somehow else post anonymously. I have a thing or two I would like to discuss, and it has definitely deterred me because I know at least one person on this board knows me IRL and it's not info I discuss with anyone except my very closest friends. Anyway, I don't know if the software is capable of allowing this option only in H&F, or how difficult it would be to implement, but I thought it was something that perhaps should be considered. Thanks for hearing me out!
