  • We go through this same question every week....just let it go! They post mostly to be rude and give their lonely lives some substance.

  • I post Anon because I want to. I'm never rude. And I'm certainly not lonely. So, please, don't put all Anon's in the same category.

  • I'm with Bmat. I post anon when I am embarrassed. especially if it's a question about sex because I'm a big ole prude!! I actually ask a lot of questions anon too because I know a few of the moms in real life and I get embarassed when they 1) bring up my questions at play group or 2) know just how into CM I really am!!!

  • Anon 9:15 is absolutely right. Not all people post anon just to be rude. Sometimes they're like the anonymous charitable contributors who stop by to offer wonderful advice and want no credit for their wonderful contributions.


    As a matter of fact, I haven't seen a rude anon in quite a while. Maybe the sport has gotten old? Or with the nicer weather upon us, the trouble makers have found something better to do for now.
