No one should have to post under their SN if they don't want to.
Since August (semi) regular participants in Answers have learned:
We have an influx of cray cray
We have an influx of one hit posters
We have an influx of drama llamas
It has (sadly) become in everyone's best interest to post under their SN's to avoid confusion.

Here is the thing with going anon- Words on a computer screen can be taken very different than what is actually means. With that particular poster (no idea who she is), the way what she wrote came off as stuck up, better than everyone else, and her child is more important than anyone else. If she used her screen name and she was a regular (I am going to use Ballad as an example since I know it wasnt' her and she has a daughter in kindergarten). If she had wrote the exact words, word for word, it would not have been taken the way it did BECAUSE we know Ballad and know what she means when she writes something. Point is, when you go anon you risk not being heard for what you really are saying because we can then only interrupt what the words on the screen say.

IMO that OP went anon not because is she is her DD is a smarty, but because she knew that her complaints about the lack of challenge so soon in the school year were a bit of an over reaction. She got what she expected, a slap on the wrist from the answerers. Plain and simple.
PS: I would have been listed as gifted if reading and writing in kindergarten was the criteria. My teacher took me and the other girl who could read aside and taught us when the others were doing more basic work. No big deal. My parents watched the me and school like a hawk all through my education and pushed them AND me when I was slacking or bored. It's just part of parenting.
