  • That is why I think the anon option should be removed.

  • They are afraid that people will come after them with pm's or look at their profile. I like the anon button and have used it on occasion, but not to be mean. There are some quesitons where people have embarassing quesitons and I want to help them without letting others know it's me. I think if people used it right then we wouldn't have a problem. There are people who do abuse it though.

  • Someone's answer is someone's answer to a question whether you have benefit of who submitted the answer or not. It shouldn't matter if the poster chose to be anonymous. Consider the actual response and not the attitude. Normally even anonymously posted responses have something valid to add to the topic even if their tone is negative. it's all good, ladies.

  • Because they are miserable, narcisistic people who get off on getting people riled up. I can see the need for the anon option--if you have a question about something you don't want all of cafemom--especially friends and/or relatives who may be on here--to know about, then it's a good option. It just means we have to grin and bear it when the trolls strike.
