Why do ppl respond to ppls questions with rude answers and then keep themselves anonymous?? I think its a little cowardly to have such nasty things to say and not "show your face". No one has done it to me but i notice it often. Do you agree? And if your one of them Im just curious as to why? :)

  • I don't think people should say anything unkind, anonymously or otherwise. I suppose if it so bad it should be reported, if it's not forbidden (there is a reason), but personally offensive, leave it alone and move on. Some people just do it to get a rise. Even foolish people are intitled to their opinions, but it has always held true that a cold shoulder is the best thing for a hot cheek.

  • If i have something to say I'll say it! I keep myself anon sometimes for privacy to some questions/answers. But if i feel strongly about something I'll say it, that's just how I am. Don't sugar coat anything, people never learn that way. But others do it because yes they are scared and can't take it when someone disagrees

  • If I'm going to say something bitchy then I want to take credit for it. :o) I don't mind showing my face. Tonight has just been one of those nights for me. I'm taking a break from school work and noticed there are so many asinine journals up tonight and even more anonymous posts.
