why do moms answer questions as anonymous?

I have noticed that in a lot of the "heated" questions moms pick to be anonymous and honestly besides being confusing because you dont know which of the 30 moms continued answering , its weird, i feel like moms hide behind that to be rude. If you are scared to recieve mean emails or what not just block those people.. just my opinion.

  • I pick anon because I don't want my answers to be accompanied by a bias. If you don't know who is answer you can take their answer for what it is instead of discounting it, giving it more consideration, or having assumptions about why they think what they do. I feel like it can be more helpful that way.

  • Google your screen name and cafe mom and you'll see all the questions and answers you've ever answered. I'd be cool if it was just available to cafemom members, but since it's easily available on the world wide web, I prefer my privacy. I try not to ever be rude though. Wish all anons could say that.

  • I don't go anonymously unless it is something personal that I don't want people knowing or I have people on here i know in my daily life. there are times i don't want them to see it and know it is me. Other than situations like that I don't believe you shoud go anon. It even says if you use is to be rude people can report it an they can suspend or delete your account.

  • I never go anonymous!
