Should CafeMom remove the Anonymous Option?

How many of you agree that CafeMom should remove the anonymous option on the Ask a Question post? I think that we are all mature enough where we should be honest enough to provide CLEAN, RESPECTFUL RESPONSES, AND NO BASHING on this post.

Some of these women really need help and it isn't fair when you get the ones that are just RUDE! I think that if you can't say anything nice then DON'T POST! I think the anonymous option should be removed.

Keep in mind that we are all Mommies and what example are we showing are kids. Are we telling our kids that it is OK to be rude to someone in need.

  • nope i think they should keep it.

    BEING RUDE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING ANONYMOUS. YOU CAN STILL BE RUDE AND SHOW WHO YOU TRULY ARE.

    if someone is being rude, report them anonymous or not and if they have broken the rules they will get notified and eventually suspended and possibly deleted.

  • I think that there are some questions that are asked that are embarrassing for the poster, and I think the option to be Anon and ask should stay, but I think that the option to be Anon and answer should go.

  • why should anonymous ANSWERS stay? you can give embarrassing answers as well. why not just report the people that are being rude. or we can all be mommies and ignore them.

  • I use the anon option sometimes if I am confiding something secret to a specific post and dont want everyone knowing who I am. I do not use it to be rude purposefully. I know many women do but it is still not a valid reason to eliminate the option altogether.

  • I think that you should only be allowed to ask a question anonymously. If you think an answer will be too personal, don't answer. Have you noticed that Most of the time, people who answer questions anonymously are being the most rude?
