Every one has the right to voice or shall i say type there opinons! so why hide?

  • Why does it bother you so much? It shouldn't. It doesn't effect you in any way. Just let it go.

  • because I have free will. If I choose to be anonymous, then I am allowed unless cafemom takes that option away.

    and actually there are ways of finding out where people are over the internet even with no info on the person, such as tracing IP address.

  • maybe we don't want the hateful ones to send us PMs or chatterbox messages just because they think we are wrong. post you are pagan, and you can get a PM from some high and might Christian about how you are evil and need to find god.

  • Why does this question keep getting posted? We keep beating this horse that's already dead!!! There are probably 80 questions that ask this very same question. It's not going to go away. People are going to be rude anonymously or not. It's not going to end.

  • Do you like drama? Because that is what you will start with this question. It doesn't hurt you at all. Let it go MamacTink

  • I personally never use the anonymous button to answer questions, but I have asked a question anonymously. It was something that I considered embarrassing, so I didn't really want all of CafeMom to know that it was me asking the question. I think that it would be WONDERFUL if the CafeMom administrators would fix Answers like this: You click Ask A Question. You type your question, then you have the option to choose whether or not to allow anonymous answers. If you choose no, you'll receive NO anonymous answers! I think that would solve a lot of problems with the rude comments & remove unnecessary drama.

  • wow! i just decided to take a look at this question. I guess it really hit a nerve with some ppl. but i say if you want to be anonymous then so be it. If not then more power to you too. The option wouldnt be on here if it wasnt right. i say just do what U feel is right. And no mind to anyone else!
