  • I do it because I can and really nobody needs to know who I am or what my screen name is-I don't need to get credit for best answer lol. I don't care if somebody is mean to me, though. They can still be mean even when I'm anonymous.

  • I never post anonymously, I don't think much of the idea. I know people can be mean sometimes, but, in my experience the worst ones are generally those who do post anonymously. If you post in a public forum (which this is) , you need to expect that some nasty people will bounce on you. You just have to develop a thick skin and ignore the mean-spirited people.

  • I post anon because I guess Im a little paranoid about mean people too. There are some folks on here who scare me a little.

  • I only do if I'm saying something embarrassing and only because I was dumb and made my screen name my real name! LOL It was not a good idea!

  • I have only posted anon when answering a sex question. Other than that I give my true answer with my true identity. If someone attacks me as anon or as Bellarose I don't really see the difference. Sometimes I am confused by anons who post anon on questions that are completely non-contraversial. Like how many kids do you have and they have to post anon to answer 2? It's weird.

  • If I have a question I am embarrassed of or if I think it's a touchy subject I'll post anonymously. Some times I get paranoid that some thing I vent about will get back to family members I don't want to know!

  • It's only the internet honey. Who the fu#$ cares what internet drama queens have to say? There's a block feature if they harass you.

  • I do it because I can.

  • - to give an honest answer without fear of repercusion
    - to say something without it being linked to your screen name, thereby possibly saving face or embarassment
