  • I always figured it was because people didn't want to stand behind their words. But some posts or answers don't seem they need to be anon. So i don't get it.

  • idk I know I have answered some anonymously if they are embarrassing or something that could have trolls follow me LOL. Otherwise I normally answer non anonymously. I have nothing to hide. I am what I am as Popeye might say.

  • Well it's a little embarrassing to say you Fart on a post but fun. I do not get the problem are you afraid you can't bash someone in specific?

  • Well, it could be for many reasons. These are some i came up with. Sadly mine is #4

    !. Don't like to stand behind their words cause they're a wuss

    2. Shyness

    3. Afraid to be ridiculed or critisized if they ask a stupid question

    4. Don't like others to see they're behind the computer on CM all day and need to get a life.

    5. Their ex's wife or girlfriend is on here also.

  • actually anon it think its not fair that a lot of people feel they need to post anon just so they dont get bashed. you shouldnt have that fear. i think everyone needs to be nicer to each other. thats nice for you to assume that i just want to verbally attack someone. call me a hippy but why is everyone so pissy with one another. i just think if you want to stand up for what you believe in you shouldnt have to post as anon. but thats just my opinion

  • They post anon because believe it or not there are women on here that will fill your mail box with how horrible you are for not agreeing with them!

  • because they can because they may have their personal reasons i stand behind EVERY word i say but at the same time sometimes i dont feel like getting thousands of freaking emails and it happens all the time so sometimes yes i post annonymous
    let me ask a question what is with these questions that seem to always questions someone when they do live in a free country the last tiem i checked? stop looking for attention i see this exact post DAILY not by the same poster but still my point stands

  • Because I'm starting to receive nasty messages from people when I give my (asked for) opinion...

    OH..and having a 16 year old with a 6 month old trying to tell me how to raise my 2 YEAR old (and my youngest of THREE) was a bit much....
