Why would you want to do that? –  Time Traveling Bobby Sep 13 '10 at 13:37

@Bobby: to ask 1) a potentially embarrassing questions without having to sign it to your name 2) to ask a controversial question 3) to better anonymize a problem if your company has a policy against asking on public websites for help, and I'm sure there are a lot more cases where doing this is necessary. –  Andreas Bonini Sep 13 '10 at 14:48
    
@Kop: 1. Questions are seldom embarrassing on SO. The only embarrassing part is if you proof to be learn-resistant in the course of answering/support. 2. "Controversial questions", ahm, that already sounds off-topic and like it doesn't belong on SO. Anyway, if you have a controversial on-topic question, feel free to ask it. 3. Ahhhhh...good point...I'll grant you that. ;) –  Time Traveling Bobby Sep 13 '10 at 15:06

Yes, that is how you would do it (after logging out, of course).
