Do you feel you HAVE to post anonymously?

Do you sometimes feel you HAVE to post anonymously otherwise you will be made fun of, bashed, yelled at, or attacked?

When I first joined here, I never used the anonymous button unless it was something VERY personal.

Now, I feel I have to post anonymously otherwise I will be bashed etc.

Does anyone else feel this way?

  • I do. I've seen several people get bashed on here so that is why I feel the need to post anonymously.

  • Really? I think it did, someone will probably say, "Get some balls!" or something.

    That wasn't my question though.

  • I honestly feel that if people are willing to post something, they shouldn't be ashamed of what they say and hide behind an anonymous post. If you feel that passionate to post it, you should stand behind it with your screen name.

    I guess the part that gets me is people are all scared of what someone they don't even know might think of them.

  • dakotanrye, thats great that you are comfortable and stand strong. while I do stand strong, I also would rather NOT have to sit there and defend myself and argue with people.

  • I guess I could see posting a question about a bodily thing could be good under anonymous. I guess I get more upset when I see crude comments by people and they hide behind the anonymous title.
