Hi, I asked this in the tavern. I need to ask a question anonymously as my profile is pretty much traceable to me.
I've been told that logging out and asking the question will do. However I'm worried that when I log in again the question will be re-associated with my account.
I'm not worried about reputation but more that it reflects on people in real life I know indirectly and I don't want to offend them.
Is it sufficient to just log out and ask the question?
Edit 1: clarification added in comments. I don't think any of the people concerned are members of these sites but they are readers. What I wouldn't like is for someone to see a situation similar to the one their in, combined with my username, my email address on my profile, my location. Pretty much means that if someone was to see the question they'd know it was about them. Thats what I don't want.
Edit 2: Morality I want to make it clear if this is against rules I won't do it either. I'm quite happy to let the mods know it was me who made the post. I won't be upvoting it either.
You've all been great telling me How to do this but just like Kragen I'd like an official nod to go ahead. I don't know whether this behaviour is banable, discouraged, encouraged (as I'm trying to prevent hurting peoples feelings) or otherwise.
Secondly I'm not worried about them trying to track me down just an accidental spot. So long as it doesn't have my username which lets face it would be recognised directly connected to the post I'm happy.
