I would like to participate anonymously in one StackExchange community. Using a different display name doesn't do me any good because even a visitor who is not logged in can check my user profile and see a full list of all the communities I participate in with that login. Basically, I would like to keep separate my professional and personal lives.
What is the recommended method for such anonymous participation (such as a user name that is not linked to my normal, long-standing user profile)? I presume I can just create a new account with a name and password, although I'm currently using an OpenId login. However...
Is there a way to keep things separate that doesn't require a bunch of logging in and out all the time every time I want to switch communities? Ideally, I would be able to be logged into all the communities at once in order to see notifications across all of SE.
Last, how can I "divorce" an existing profile in a community from the rest of my profiles so it can become anonymous, which it currently is not (as one can see such linking information easily)?
