  • because if you are anon then you lose 3 points if it's voted down and I guess they think you should know about that. But anything done with anon won't earn you points, even vote ups.

    it was cafemom's answer to rude anons but it's also being used on just disagreeing in general which sucks

  • I'm not sure, I don't post anon. Hmm...maybe because it takes points away?

  • I think b/c it counts against you when you are anon, but not if you answer under your screen name

  • I agree anon. Go ahead and "punish" the anons with bad answers, but reward them too... right?

  • if i can lose points as anon i should be able to gain them too!

    People have been telling them that in the answers group since the system was first put in. They don't care. All they care about is how many people click and see their ads all day.

  • the purpose of allowing anon posting is for people to share sensitive information without embarrassment. This was their way to encourage it to be used as intended. If you use anon you don't get rewarded and you can get dinged if you use it wrong.
