When asking anonymous question the user name is not displayed in the question? But if this user has commented or asked question on other places his activity list includes the anonymous questions he has asked. So in effect asking anonymous question is rendered useless since the identity of the person asking the question is already public and this question is listed in users activity.

Similarly, the person who has made the anonymous question has also put few tags on it. And if you search on users' profiles to see if these tags are included in their posted tags, you can find who asked the anonymous question (in a system with many users this is a lot of search, but still he could get uncovered). And the more unique these tags are, the closer you come to find the anonymous person.
