My questions to regulation.gov and Coast Guard

Many members of The Divers Association Int., I am a board member of this organization are afraid to post their comments on Docket No. USCG-1998-3786. The Coast Guard has listed/referenced The Association of Diving Contractors Int., throughout the proposed regulation. Weather the fear is just perceived or real they do not want this organization to see their names on anything that might go against what the ADCI has proposed to the Coast Guard.
1) Please explain who has access to where Anonymous postings come from?

2) If I post them as: Posting for a Third Party; will their individual comment have any weight, be considered, and will it be up for public view?

This is important to our members as they believe that I will pass on comments, even those that go against my own position and I do want to keep that trust?
