Anyone sick of anonymous replies?

I think a lot of women on here abuse the privilege of being able to post anonyously. I've seen so many cruel "answers" to a lot of heartfelt questions.

Anyone feel the way I do?

  • anyone else sick of all the questions about anon answers...sheesh...move on with your life, PLEASE. You waste your time worrying about what someone ls saying. When all is said and done there is nothing you can do to change it. Spend the time you now spending thinking about anon answer and meditate..something..anything.

  • It's always the nasty answers that are anonymous, Some times I ask questions anon because I'm worried about ridicule when I really just need someone to identify with.

  • You get gripes about negative answers whether they are anon or with a name attached. It really doesn't matter. There are many people on here that ask questions they really don't want honest answers to, which differ from what they want to hear.

  • It bothers me that people use it to be rude. There are up sides and down sides to everything though. Some people who use anon need it to ask a serious question, and are too embarrassed to post with their screen name. Or someone may know the answer to a question and be embarrassed that they know the answer to a question "like that". While it is terrible that people use anon to abuse CM Q&A, it's good for the moms that actually have a valid reason to post as anon. Just remember that you can always click the "Report this answer" button under the post if someone is being really mean or cruel. The answers that people give may show up TO USas anon. but the CAFEMOM TEAM can see who everyone really is.
