Chris,

As a suggestion for your Posting questions anonymously[^] feature...

I would like to contact a specific member because his experience and expertise and in a single field. It's an extremely low level hard drive firmware question and could be covered by NDA at his past/present employers. So his answer may be that he cannot help/disclose the information. I'd rather that the exchange not be publicly posted. However I don't have anything to hide... it's just that I'd rather the exchange remain semi-confidential.

Here is an example that I don't mind disclosing:
I am currently analyzing a rootkit that implements persistence in a unique way. It basically marks the last sector of the Windows BOOT partition as bad (which happens to be a deterministic location for winre.wim) and it relies on the hard drive firmware to reallocate a sector from the reserved area to 'patch' the Winre.wim (Windows Recovery Environment[^]) file. One of our regulars has experience with hard-drive firmware and could possibly answer some of my questions about sector reallocation.

I'd rather that these types of questions and answers are not public. But I'd also like to perform the information exchange right here on codeproject. Have you considered adding a 'Targeted Question' feature? Also perhaps allowing some questions/answers to be marked as non-public maybe 'Private Messages' or 'Private Questions'?

I anticipate that you may answer 'Just click email' in his profile. However many members here have their work e-mail associated with their account. As you probably know... most employees cannot answer questions using their work e-mail address.

Your thoughts?

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
