Which most people will hear as "Hey, world! I am somebody you don't
know and I vouch for this certificate!"

I don't think anything has been suggested here that would make it
difficult to discover the social relationship. Just a means to make
the public pronouncement without publicly stating your identity. And
to do so in such a way that people who already know your identity can
tell it is you that made the pronouncement.
