What it says on the tin.

Creating an option that allows Public Press Only games, that only allows for anonymous posting. It should be simple to implement, and it could lead to some entertaining games, with players trying to mislead other players by pretending to be someone they are not.

That sounds like a lot of fun :D

I think Public/Private key encryption eventually devolves this into basically a normal public press game, but for the first few turns at least you could definitely pretend to be speaking for a country you're not, which could add some Versailles style hidden information/chaos.

I've always wanted to try a "grey press" game, which means you can send private messages Anon if you want.

I did consider that, but my assumption was that people wouldn't be willing to put that much effort in - but then again, this is diplomacy.
