Whether any users can post Anonymously even after looging into the application.

What I mean is whether there is any option where after logging into the application whether the user can choose to show him/her as anonymous while posting .

Need help on this

AFAIK, jForum doesn't support this. If you want to be anonymous, you have to log out and do it that way.

I can see in a small environment that this might be useful, e.g. being open about a problem or process when your boss is the problem. However, in a bigger more public environment, this can lead to a lot of admin headaches when people abuse this with spam posts or heckling posts.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
