How would you build a website where people can have an anonymous Q&A discussion with you?

I'm trying to create a site where people could anonymously ask me a question and then have an ongoing private discussion (not real time). For example, they fill out a form on the main website with their question. I can then respond to their question with a private posting. Then they can respond back with another posting. If they could do this without having to create a login, that would be even better.
How the site is structured is flexible. So for example, if the followup conversation could be done via anonymous email service or some other method, if it makes things easier. However, the more streamlined and simple it is the better. For example an old style bulletin board with private messages would be too cumbersome.
I'm trying to put this together as easily as possible, so using existing tools and site creators would be ideal. I have basic working knowledge of HTML and putting together a website. Is there a fairly easy way to do this or is it going to get complicated? Just looking for ideas of how realistic this would be or if there is a simple way to do it. Thanks!!
