Let admins allow anonymous posts / anonymous channels
A setting that allows users to make anonymous posts. Or that forces all posts in a given channel to be anonymous.
On a trusted server, this gives users a safe place to make anonymous statements.
Similar to the "Anonymous posting" feature of Discourse: https://www.discourse.org/about/
> Enable anonymous posting mode and your users can easily switch to anonymous mode to post about controversial, dangerous, or political issues without fear.

As we will start using MM in a teaching environment, a possibility to allow anonymous posts would be greatly appreciated!
Same thing as for PJ here: We would liek to allow use to ask questions in an anonymous form.

We are migrating from HipChat and the ability to allow anonymous users would be very helpful (especially if they *could* specify their name before entering the room). This was an incredibly valuable feature of HipChat for us.
We have a use-case to enable anonymous posts so that users of our platform may ask questions without revealing their identity, so this feature would be great for us.
