anonymous answers

just curious... why do people who genuinely answer questions that aren't controversial post as anonymous? I understand asking and answering touchy subject questions as anonymous, and even if you feel the need to make a snide or rude remark posting it anonymously... but why when it's just an honest, non-controversial answer do people post anonymously?

  • get over it please.

    People will keep doing it until cafemom will change it. But they wont, since there are women on here who dont want anybody know / see about their real problem.

    Nothing you can do about it. And no matter how many more women will complain about it in a question, like you just did, its not gonna change. it just starts more drama.

  • I'm shy and on here I can just be myself...I'm shy in real life too. I also don't like my name being all over CM, Idk...There seems to be an increase in stalkers and they target the people who seem to be more open and all over the place. I do post anonymous on a lot of simple things that no one would even get mad over, but I just like the anonymous-ness of it. lol.

  • I like having the anonymous feature. I post anon because it makes me feel a bit safer in this wacky internet world. I also never post pictures of myself or my children on here for safety reasons as well.

    Also, I try to make sure when I post an answer or a question, that my words are honoring to God. I try to be kind and respectful, but ultimately I only hold my words (and actions) accountable to God.
