to do it anonymously, i recommend creating a new account using a new,
anonymous e-mail (if required), all via Tor of course.

as for safely, you can always try changing the url to https, sometimes a
site supports https but doesn't use it by default.  ensure your browser
warns you if parts of the page are unencrypted and when you are
submitting unencrypted information, check to especially make sure the
form submission links will use https.

otherwise, there is no safe way to do it.  you have to be prepared in
this case for your login credentials and entire account to be
compromised.  of course changing your password is futile as that is
probably done in the clear as well.  at least you will remain anonymous.
 to me, personally, (to my knowledge) this has not happened.
