Why post anon just to out yourself with your votes?

It's kind of entertaining, but really. If you're going to post anon to say something nasty, shouldn't you then stop yourself from voting up every answer you agree with so that it's obvious who is posting the anon trolling? (same goes for downvoting - when every answer in the question gets an up or down vote at the same time except yours, it's pretty obvious who did it)

  • I;d think if your afraid of getting down voted, you WOULD up vote just to make up for the points your about to lose from getting down-voted. Assuming one cares about points.

  • Clearly they're not the most intelligent. But is it really neccissary to post every other day about Anon's? Seriously, can we let this go already?

    I'm not talking about points, I'm talking about posting anon. One of my most dedicated stalkers outed herself months ago (and still really believes I have no idea who she is). She basically "signs" every question where she follows me around with her vote pattern. If you see answers from 4 people that all agree - Sue, Jane, Mary, Anon. Answers from 2 people that disagree. Sue has upvotes from Jane, Mary and "Sally", Jane has upvotes from Sue, Mary and "Sally", Mary has upvotes from Sue, Jane and "Sally" and anon has upvotes from Sue, Jane, and Mary. The 2 answers that disagree both have 4 downvotes. Well gee, wonder who anon is.
