What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 141 Stack Exchange communities.

For some of the sites, such as security, parenting and the workplace, it would be useful to be able to ask questions anonymously. For example, someone might want to ask about issues that could either lead to a security compromise, be embarrassing for their children later on or possibly lose them their job.

On those sites it is possibly to log out (not on Stack Overflow), but this doesn't provide you with notifications when the questions are answered.

Could you explain why you think it would be useful? Maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't - although pseudonyms are a form of anonymity in and of themselves. –  Makoto Jun 17 '12 at 8:05
@Makoto I think this might be useful, as many people share their SE account names with their co-workers, thus eliminating the anonymity. –  annonymously Jun 17 '12 at 8:07
How hard is it to keep an eye on the site? –  Arjan Jun 17 '12 at 8:22
