I must have missed where he mentioned that.

I started to wonder about about setting it as an anonymous list but that 
would affect all posts - both from user to the committee as well as 
responses from the committee. But maybe something could be done with two 
lists - one for the users to send to that is normal and a second that the 
committee replies via that is anonymous and has the main list as its only 
member (I think this is an umbrella list but having never used umbrella 
lists, I'm unsure).
