  • I just want to. I don't really understand why it's a big deal. Not all anon are b*****s.

  • I dont usually use it unless its something that could cause someone to email me, or stalk me which believe it or not has happened to me. Lets say political posts or something like that...I have had people hate mail me only because they dont agree with my politics. That is about the only time I may use the anon button.

  • Embrassed, most of the time when i answer a sexal question or a strange one about nose picking, i don't want ppl i know on here to look at my answer and have something to say.Sometimes about religon because i don't want someone to come along and put bad stuff on my profile.

  • I have, if a subject is embarrassing, mainly.

    Answer by Bmat at 8:17 AM on Jan. 6, 2009

  • Usually, I use it when I am asking/answering something embarrassing or using examples in my own life and want to protect the innocent or guilty, whichever the case may be. I don't use it when I'm expressing opinions or talking about myself.

    Answer by Austinsmom35 at 8:18 AM on Jan. 6, 2009

  • I always answer anon. I just like it. I'm never rude to people or say nasty things. I would just rather my words be taken for what they say, rather than who I am.
