Why do some people ask questions anonymously?

This does NOT include the sexually, potentially embarrassing questions. That makes sense to me. The questions that I'm referring to are: a lady was looking for a meatloaf recipe? I'm not trying to be a douche, but I was just wondering why some people do this over what one would normally consider inane/benign?

  • This is the only section of Cafemom that is not private. Men have infilterated this site, I don't know if many are aware of this but x's can easily access any info posted here, it is available to the general public, you do not need to be a member to read what is posted here but men also disguise themselves as women and join. The meatloaf question may seem benign to you but it could be that the person posting it may have issues with the x knowing their business, and may just feel a general need for privacy.

  • I have no idea, it is something that drives me nuts. I kind of think that the anon options should only be allowed in certain sections.

  • Maybe they are 'testing' their anonymity with a safe questions before posting a question that REALLY requires it.

  • I'm the one with the meatloaf recipe!! Yeah sorry about that.. Sometimes I check the anon box by accident. I always go for the box on the bottom but when I do it quickly I check the wrong box.. It's happened a couple of times to me!!
