  • Shoot I'm not afraid to say what I feel in real life I'm not going to use a computer to censor myself. I'll always post with who I am and I do not apologize for anything I say. If I do hurt anyways feelings I do apologize for that, but not for what I feel, think or say.

  • I use the anon thing a lot, especially when I am answering a personal question that I don't want to have displayed on the internet. People should be very careful about how they act online, it can come back to bite you on the butt. Especially in job situations. Your screen name can be traced back to you so even sites like this have the potential to cause problems.

  • For all the reasons stated above! I do not use it most of the time unless I am asking a question and that's to address some touchy issues.
