    Maybe an alternative to prevent spamming would be to make a tribe anonymous if the chief wants it. Instead of usernames it would just show ANONYMOUS with a generic avatar picture. You could have mods have the option of posting anonymously or as a mod when it's official business.

    Posts in anonymous tribes then would not appear in one's profile or the feed of people following them. They may or may not afflict the rep score if they're up- or downvoted. This would be a compromise because it works like throwaway accounts in tribes like /t/suicidewatch while still making spamming in other tribes who won't support it impossible.

      I also like this idea as well. This should not be hard to implement.

      I like this idea, you're still using your main account but all posts into the tribe would be anonymous by means of a setting on the tribe. Then you could have the comment box have a setting when anonymous posting is active to switch from anonymous to default but have anonymous on at all times. By still using 'usernames' you can still tell who OP is even when the post shows up as anonymous.

      This would be amazing.
