How many ppl won't answer anon posters questions anymore?

Nine times outta ten I don't even click on an anon question anymore. I have had some games played on me w/anons. I think that a lot of the crazy outta this world questions being asked are simply trolls.
Do you give them your time and attention?

  • Yes I do. It doesn't make a difference to me if the post either way. I still do not know who they truly are.

  • I always ask anon. yesterday i asked if anyone was a teacher, and todat i asked if there were tarantulas where you live?
    why would you not answer my question? I am not a troll and i am aware that some anons. (okay, most anons.) are trolls, there is no reason to group them ALL together

  • I always ask anon and I always answer anon. I used to not do so but then I'd get stalkers who'd post on my page so I started posting anon.

  • I do. Because not all Anons are trolls. Some are asking personal questions, sometimes wacky questions and they use the Anon button to hide their identity because they are embarrased. That's okay. I understand what you are saying though. I can tell which ones are trolls or atleast sound like trolls!

  • i started asking anon. because i would be asking a genuine question, that i had no clue about, and other moms would get on and bash me and say rude things...so i ask anon. to just keep myself private, makes me feel better that way, like people cant judge me because they dont know my face or who i am.

  • I usually ask anon, and answer anon sometimes. Just like the privacy. But i've never asked "troll" questions. I'll answer an Anon question if i have anything to contribute to the problem/question asked.

  • I keep waiting for CafeMOM to change the rules and make it so the OP can select will accept anon answers or WON'T accept anon answers. Some questions should be anon. And often you would get less drama if anon answers were not permitted.

  • I'll answer most anon questions unless they are repetitive and controversial, in that case I rarely open them, but sometimes it's funny to see women bicker anon.

  • Sometimes. It depends on the question, though.

  • I never post anonymous but I will give my opinion to someone else who has posted anonymously. I'm still not sure on the need to post questions anonymously, I think it's low self esteem. You can be a faceless question. Even if you just don't want to be bashed, regardless of whether you post anonymous or not, that is still going to happen. I don't even think it should be an option to post anonymously or not. I've noticed that people post anonymous USUALLY just because they want to say something mean.
