Why is everyone using Anonymous even on simple questions?

I don't get it, is everyone afraid of people judging them?

  • I almost always ask and answer anon. I don't need the glory. Sometimes I forget to check the box, but I like to know I'm helping some mother out. No one else needs to know who I am. Also, I've gotten some nasty comments about posting too much, so screw them. I'll do it all anon! Thats my reason, anyway.

  • I think people are worried about what others will think of them. Unfortunately to even simple questions I see bashing and a lot of women, includint myself, believe this site is meant for other women to help you. Not to bash your thoughts. I have heard of women even going to others pages just to bash them. I could care less. These people do not know me and it is just a web site so what they say cannot bring me down. But I can see where others would be offended. I know 99% of the people on this site wouldnt talk that way to someone else if they were talking to them in person (that 1% have no shame or morals) A lot of times people do not know the whole story they assume.

  • I do it because I admit I suffer from low self esteem. I really like cafemom and although I don't give alot of advice or offer a opinion alot, I know if people really got down me and made me feel terrible I would probably just never post again. I don't wanna take that chance.
