Support. Policy proposals are a big deal, if someone is going to make one, then they should be made by known users.

Regarding PM admins for anonymity....what if the person is not on good terms with any of the admins (I still don't even know who all the admins are tbh)? I trust that admins are admins because they have shown a great deal of integrity, but not everyone is going to have that same level of trust I assume. How do we handle that?

The 3 current admins are listed in the mod list here in f/meta.

If for some reason they don't trust any of the 3 admins, they could pm a user they do trust and ask them to post their proposal?

Sidebar says:

Anyone with a month-old account and 20 posts/comments has voting rights.

Ammendment:

The shared accounts and obvious throwaways cannot participate in meta discussions (due to abuse). If you must make a proposal anonymously, pm an admin (or another trusted user) from your regular account and ask them to make the proposal on your behalf.

I support the idea that shared accounts should not be able to make policy proposals (I think) or vote (definitely). However, the wording you have here seems to prevent them even from commenting in /f/meta, which I don't agree with.

Also, they recommend PMing an admin with your regular account. Why not PM an admin anonymously?

How does that change anything?

Because then you don't have to trust the admin to keep you anonymous.

The problem is trolls are abusing the anon accounts. We need verification that they're not a troll.

It shouldn't be done with a shared account. Suppose we banned shared accounts from making policy proposals, but allowed throwaways to do so with permission from an admin?

Throwaways for posting only? Limit commenting to it's own posts (if that's even possible?)
