What would happen if...

Cafe Mom took the anonymous button away? Do you think people would be a lot nicer to eachother?

  • I don't really think so. Some of the most heated arguments I've seen were between people who were not posting anonymously. I do think you'd get fewer responses though to some of the more controversial or personal questions.

  • Lol... maybe a little. Even when they can't be anonymous people still get nasty ont he internet.

  • We probably wouldn't have as many people posting answers or questions as we do now.

  • I think cafe mom should try to go without the anonymous button just to see what would happen.

  • Maybe some of the anons would make up fake profiles so they could still post and say whatever they wanted "anonymously". Just because you have a screen name and a profile to look at doesn't mean they are who they say they are.

  • I like to use the anon button because I have family members on here and a lot of times I don't want them to know my like personal stuff. But I am still nice 99% of the time. And 99% of the time when I am not nice I don't post anon, because I usually have a reason. I'm not a bitch though, I mean, if I am "mean" I am just up front about stuff. Whew. That was a lot of explaining for one question LOL

  • I think cafemom still knows who posts anon answers, so maybe they just need to crack down on the ones being mean about it and it wouldn't happen as often.
