Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I know there's the option of disassociating all accounts from each other.

The Stack Exchange Network Profile/Accounts links should be made optional

But the problem there then is that well, your accounts are disassociated and you can't keep track of questions via one central place (the inbox).

For most users, who may be on 10 - 20 SE sites, they're not going to want to check each site to see how their questions or answers are going.

Why don't we just offer a way to hide your Network Profile if you want to?

From whom would you like to hide it? Yourself? The bogeyman? – Cody Gray May 17 '11 at 8:28
@Cody : Please see the linked question for reasons why you may want to hide your network profile – RoboShop May 17 '11 at 12:28
I did...all I found was this, which seems to suggest there's no reason for this feature-request. – Cody Gray May 17 '11 at 12:33
@Cody : that's the whole point of this question. Yes, you can post anonymously, but then they wouldn't be linked, you would lose all the benefits of having a linked account. You would have to keep track of all the questions you've participated, in all the sites. Given that you can troll the site by posting anonymously if you really wanted, why not just allow the network profile to be hidden? – RoboShop May 17 '11 at 12:43
