I use the anti-kibitzer. (This anonymises LessWrong, with the hope of reducing bias in judging posts. I think there's an option for it in Preferences.) It's great.

Ok, who am I? (lol!)

Edit: The anti-kibitzer feature is quite interesting as I just noticed it's an extremely clear example of a situation in which there's a tradeoff between instrumental and epistemic rationality, and when purposefully depriving yourself of relevant information yields the preferred outcome.
