Why do so many post anonymously over here?

Seriously, what is up with all of the anonymously posted questions and responses? I find it rather irritating for some reason. I can understand why someone would if they are posting a harsh or rude answer, although I still feel you should use your screen name, not doing so is just silly if you ask me, but I really don't get the people that post nice answers anonymously. Anonymous people, why do you do it? I don't see many anonymous journal posts or responses, what is the deal with the Answers section? Why is everyone so seemingly scared to own up to their questions and responses?

  • I answer nicely W/ anon and post anon all the time. I can ask whats for dinner and it be anon. Idk why.. just do sometimes. :) WHO CARES REALLY... its doesnt bother me. I guess when ppl are being rude to u, maybe u wanna know who it is. BUT, alot of ppl dont have there own pics up anyway.... IT doesnt matter to me really. I do hate when ppl go around calling ppl "TROLLS".. thats so high school.

  • because they do nor have the balls to own what they say. Or it may be an embarrassing or personal question maybe regarding a health issue.

  • I do it because I'm not gonna get rude PMs from people who can't stand the fact that I don't believe the same way they do and I have my own opinions. People are rude like that.

  • I just feel better in doing so sometimes. It gives me a just a little more courage to say how a i really feel. Its helping me grow a pair so that i can start posting honest answers with my screen name.
