  • Maybe they don't have the confidence in the beginning to say who they are. Then after seeing the responses, they feel they can open up and share their feelings without anyone beating them up with their words or opinions. That's just one possibility. Another is, I've heard others say, "Sorry about that, pressed the wrong button because they weren't paying attention." Which I can believe with all the multitasking we seem to be able to do. We sure do have some awesome women on Cafemom. Wouldn't you agree? Just like you, caring enough to want to know why someone does it.... Kudos to you!

  • Maybe they mean to post anon and forget.

  • because you have to be a certain level before you can answer anonymously.

  • because everyone will be able to ask a question anon but if they're not level 16 or up they can't reply anon

  • I posted one anon once my accident. I didn't even realize I had checked the box. Oh, well. But, for others.....I don't know.

  • Maybe they made a mistake? Ihave seen a few Moms explain they made a mistake posting Anon. But I don't worry about it. No big deal.
