If you believe in your opinion...

Why post Anon?
This isnt against Anon posting. I get that someone may want to keep the personal, personal.

But if you are just putting your opinion out there
Is your opinion so indefensible you have to hide?

  • If I asked a provocative question, it would mean I wanted a discussion and as much participation as possible. That's what questions like that are to me. Not to be a pompous bitch and run off in my little anon hidey hole. I would want to get my opinion, why I had that opinion, and find out how others felt and why.

  • I don't understand.. people should stick by their opinions without being so embarrassed by them that they have to hide.

    Seems childish to me.

  • Cowardice, plain and simple. Whenever anonymity is used, except for in posts where there are very personal details that shouldn't be linked to a screen name, good old-fashioned gutlessness is at play.

  • Unless it's super personal I never use the anon option. It's my opinion, of course I think I'm right LOL.

  • Oh, or shit stirring. If it's not cowardice, it's shit stirring.

  • If I'm asking the question in which I state that opinion, I would not do it anon.

    If I'm answering someone else's question by stating that opinion, I might do it anon if I thought that someone who would disagree with me would harass me afterward - not because I don't believe in my opinion, but because I don't see why I should have to put up with someone's childish bullshit because I stated it.
