  • On other sites I belong to, it is possible for Admins to discover who is posting anon. However, they are supposed to have a reason to do if someone is threatening someone (or themselves) bodily harm, if someone is posting about illegal activities, etc. In cases such as these, it's in the TOS that they can get into the records and report it to the authorities.

    One one particular site, it was discovered that the owner was going into the anon posts and finding out who they were just because....people started leaving and/or calling for her to give up her position. She gave up the site and handed it over to a new owner.

    My guess would be they don't look at each anon answer/post, but those which are reported if necessary. But who knows. Based on past experience questioning admin, I'm betting you'd get no straight answer.

  • Of course they do. They can tell who is reading what question at any moment. How many are in what section. Who wrote what answer, poll, question, anon or not. They can even tell how many times a person logs into the site in one day. It's the program. Someone has to be responsible for those who actually give a crap what someone has to say on here.
