  • They might be embarrassed about what they are asking? Or they don't want their friends to know.

  • They may feel more comfortable doing it anonymously. But really, who cares if they do or not.

  • The only issue I have with the anon button is the people who want to be little bitches && talk shit to other moms on here && then hide behind it. come on, if you're so perfect wouldn't you want everyone to know who you are??

  • I feel more comfortable asking anon or answering anon... i embarass easily and feel dumb a lot of the time... it's me knowing i can actually hide! I do not make rude comments, if I can't say anything nice, i don't type it at all!!! i guess it's just so i can feel like when I give an answer someone else doesn't agree with they won't "attack" me.

  • I NEVER used to use it, but now there is a girl on here that if i dont post anonymously, she talks mad crap about ANYTHING i say. She thinks i dont know its her because she does it under anonymous too, but i know it is her...

    So i dont want to be attacked every time i ask a question on here, so i do it anonymously.

  • I get that,,,,I just dont feel comfortable to answering a question from someone who is anonymous,,,Im responding to you,,,full name as I am in CM..I hope you would feel comfortable enough posting who you are to me,,,,

  • its not you, its other people that will attack me ALL the time. anytime i ask a question, there are people that know my certain beliefs and will JUMP MY THROAT even if it has nothing to do with my question or answer.

    i just dont want to be attacked.

  • that's really sad that you guys feel like you have to post anon. nothing towards you, but to the people attacking you... We are all mothers on here && no one should have to feel like they are less of a mother just because they believe differently than someone else. All these people that are attacking other people are pathetic && obviously have no self-esteem b/c they have to put other people down to feel good about themselves. it's really quite sad.....

  • Sometimes, we're curious (I sometimes look at profiles, just because) and I'm sure the asker doesn't want thousands of moms looking at the questions to blow up their profile and chatterboxes with advice. Some moms get a lot of unwanted PMs. That makes sense to me.

    If they're a troll however, I just don't understand it at all.
