I'm sure this has been asked before, but...

I've noticed that some people answer to questions as anonymous..despite the question being completely innocent. Like... What brand of soap do you like best? How old was your baby when he/she crawled? Not that those are my legit examples, just specifics on the type of question.
I understand maybe someone going "undercover" because they have a snarky comment... or they don't want anyone to know it's them asking a question or what have you..
But... why anonymous on questions like that? Just curious. :]

  • Did you know that when you ask a question as anonymous it still comes up on your friend's pages that you added the question? Yup. Try it! (It could have been a glitch that they fixed, but i've seen it happen about 6-7 times)

    Anyways, I think it's great that people can hide behind the anon button when leaving a snarky comment. I HATE that!

  • I guess they think people are interested enough in them to go to their page or add them as a friend or something. I never answer anon unless it's something personal. I don't really care if people come to my page. I'm not conceited enough to think that that many people are interested in me.

  • I do it because people don't want advice from me because of my age or I get better answers when I hide who I am instead of getting comments like "close your legs" or "focus on school". That's my reason.

  • MomAt15woah, that's really pathetic that people treat you that way. Tell 'em to shove it until they've walked in your shoes.

  • I bet the people who say focus on school are anon though...right?

  • I answer anon if its something rather personal, but otherwise I just really don't care. I'm nothing special...LOL :))

  • I don't know why I do it... Probably because I think I might sound stupid and I don't need people to point out all my mistakes to me by coming to my page and leaving comments there.
