Thanks for that encouraging word... to somebody.

Perhaps said leader might be named?  While not publicly naming names on 
the negative side is arguably a good thing, isn't publicly crediting 
people by name for positives like this, when the opportunity arises, part 
of the solution, not the problem?

(Unless there's a specific reason not to, in this case.  A simple "Thanks 
to that unnamed person" statement would then indicate that the name was 
deliberately withheld, while keeping it positive.  IMO, of course.)
