Have you even left an anonymous, judgmental, negative or nasty comment on a blog which you would never, ever would say to the writer or anybody in person?

I've seen a lot of nastiness written in comments lately (not necessarily my own blog) and wonder about the people who write really negative views under a veil of anonymity especially when it comes to judging other parents' parenting decisions and styles. Do they feel so strongly that they would they say the same to someone on the street? Or do they take pleasure in riling people up. I am wondering since I am doing research for an upcoming post on my blog . I look forward to hearing the results...and no worries, you can comment anonymously if you want.

  • Nope. I don't say anything online, either anon or under my SN that I wouldn't say to a person's face.

  • Absolutely not. Regardless of who else knows what we do it is a reflection of our character.

  • No. Because I think that my conscious will hunt me forever.

  • I only use the anon feature to ask a question if I'm embarrassed or something. I don't use it to answer or comment though. If I don't have the balls to say it with my name showing, I don't think I have the right to say anything at all.

  • No, if I have something to say that in disagreement or negative in any way, I try to have the balls to say it while showing my "face" (or screen name).

  • Nope. I'm capable of expressing my opinion without being judgmental or nasty about it. And I wouldn't say something online that I wouldn't say to your face, I hate people that are like that.

  • I don't speak in a cruel way either in person or online. I know at least one person who prides herself on speaking her mind, but I prefer kindness if I possibly can.

  • Nope. I'm always a bitch... But I always own up to it!

    Answer by SabrinaMBowen at 9:29 PM on Jul. 28, 2010

  • No. I might be nasty if I am in bad mood but I would say they same either way.
