  • Some people feel that what they post might be controversial and want answers but don't want flames in their personal inboxes.

  • Let me tell ya, I have done plenty of bashing on the anon's. And then I had friends to explain to me why they do it and ONLY post anon and it is ok with me. After yesterday with a completely crazy lunatic sending me threatening posts, yes, I can agree that there is nothing wrong with posting anonymously.

  • We have the option and it is a personal choice. And i agree with the pp. Some people might not like an others answer and have the need to backlash at them, which is wrong because we all have our personal opinions.

  • Because of the unbelievable amount of bashing that goes on, because of the ignorance and intolerance shown by some people, because of the name-calling and generalizing, because it's not unusual to get "hate mail" in private messages from people who disagree with a post. All of this is sad, but unfortunately true :( And I think it goes on in ALL forums, not just the political one.

  • Because I believe that my words are accountable to God and God alone and He already knows who I am so I have no need to publicize it on here. I use my words, and my actions, to honor Him.

  • I always post anon, because of all of the reasons annon 11:48 stated. I've seen all the name calling and no thank you, i do not wish to have my inbox filled with hate mail.
