SE employees can disassociate posts from accounts. The main use is to anonymize specific posts, which users can request under the Creative Commons license.

Good. So can we request by mailing to team@stackoverflow.com? or anything else? –  hims056 Nov 29 '12 at 9:38

That is the best way, you can also flag for moderator attention, but then the moderators just have to forward this to an SE employee. –  Mad Scientist Nov 29 '12 at 9:39

Sorry to mention this but couldn't resist. The account link is visible in revision history, so you should try some other way to anonymize to post :) –  Aziz Shaikh Nov 29 '12 at 9:55
    
@AzizShaikh - I mailed to team to remove it from revision history. –  hims056 Nov 29 '12 at 9:56

@hims056 it's still easy to tell who asked the original question because one of the comments there refers to them by name - maybe you could point that out to the team as well. –  Ian Nov 29 '12 at 10:04
