    Are there any circumstances when contact with a public official should be or could be anonymous?

    Let’s re-phrase the question to this: Does a citizen have a right or a privilege to remain anonymous/unidentified if he/she so chooses?

    If not, how then can a citizen be free to conduct his personal affairs with one part of government without other parts of government or the media or the public-at-large knowing his personal business?

    I don’t see that contact with government is anyone else’s concern unless illegality is involved.
