Allow Guest user to post to chatter (insert FeedItem records)


We have utilized sites to let anonymous users have limited access to certain database objects.  We were hoping to be able to use chatter to post their activities, but it turns out the Guest User license cannot insert FeedItem records, even when using 'Without Sharing'.  However, the Guest User does update records and the changes they make are reflected correctly if you are tracking changes on specific fields, so it seems there shouldn't be a technical reason as to why we can't manually add FeedItem records.
