I think you have to be a registered user to post anything. You could always register another account using a secondary email address, I suppose. But I am sure the evil powers that be could always track you down by your IP address if they really wanted to... :o

Register a different login name, plus you can prevent your email address from being accessed through the boards, through the email settings. That way, I think you might be truly anonymous.

I think this might be useful to everyone. Who knows who's lurking? I'm considering registering a new user name and publishing the password so everyone can use it.

I'm moving this over to the "how-to" board as it isn't about Form 5500 (unless I'm a dope and completely missed the point here).

You need an account to post. Most boards are setup like this to slow down spammers. I'm not sure a public account is the answer either as it might give people the green light to post willy-nilly nonsense. Maybe contact Dave to see what he can offer you.

Any way to log in anonymously to post a question? "Paranoia runs deep"

Ahhh, a man after my own heart.

All my co-workers use pseudonyms…and they think I am silly for using my real name – I wonder

Do we recall when Dave just revamped the message board? It included a requirement that displayed the poster’s IP address (I found out then that one member was my co-worker and was able to tell who she is by the IP address- albeit her pseudonym… :ph34r: ). For us, we didn’t want to post then, because our firm is very conservative and we are cautious about our comments being misconstrued as responses provided by our employer, instead of us-as simple wannabe experts. As Chip said, paranoia runs deep.

Using a pseudonym gives you anonymity from the general public- so you may be covered in that respect. …but make sure you make no threats; reveal secrets; make incriminating comments etc… as Dave or any party who maintains the board can determine your identity through your IP address, which is always available, even if we can’t see it on the post.
