Using anon is no different than having a CM screen name. I don't know your real name, nor your address, phone number or anything else about you. I only know what you put on CM under that screen name. You could be a 56 year old man acting like a 26 year old mother of five, just for the kicks.
Anon doesn't have all that. Anon is just like a new profile with nothing filled out. You have to deal with the question or comment as presented, without any baggage. So it's not hiding. It's an option the CM gave it's members. Not every wife want's their husband to know they asked a sexual question, so they use anon. Want to vent about your sister, use anon. CM has too many family and friends up here, use anon. CM still knows who posted what, so it's only anon to the web-public.
Nothing wrong with using anon.
