I'm looking for a way to allow subscribers to post or comment anonymously. Basically it would be a checkbox at the end of the comment form, exactly like beyond the shock. Any ideas?


You can allow anonymous comments in WordPress in wp-admin/options-discussion.php:

enter image description here

Just do not check Comment author must fill out name and e-mail.

There is a small usability catch: Sometimes users may just forget to fill in their data. I have added a small JavaScript confirm message box asking if they really want to send as anonymous user.
