    You must be new.

    The ANON debate is is what it is. People use it, abuse it, ignore it.......take all answers, ANON or not, with a big grain of salt.

  • Because it's their choice and right to do so? Maybe the topic at hand was one which was very personal to them -- so much that they do not want others to know, but felt they had something they could share with the OP in terms of advice or whatever. Or perhaps they just don't feel like getting backlashed for sharing their opinion? Granted it is 2009 and we all have the right to our own opinions and all of that, but there are some people who just aren't able to say "Ok, that's your opinion and that's fine" and then let it go.

  • Because there are immature moms out there who would then send mean, hateful messages to the poster because the poster had a different opinion than they....

  • OMG...yeah, because questions like "How often do you do your laundry" or "How many siblings do you have" are high stress questions! lol. The only time I've ever been anonymous is when I was answering a sex question I thought was embarrassing or that my SO wouldn't want me to talk about publicly, but other than that I've been on over a year, gotten plenty opinionated, went against posters with different opinions and haven't gotten hate mail.

  • Some do it to be rude and they don't want other people to know its them. Some are just shy. Me I just answer no matter what with my name right there so if there is a question about how often your but sweats you are all going to know how often my but sweats, and I am proud.
