Why do people make bitchy comments on here and make themselves anonymous? If I have something to say, I say it and don't care if people see who I am.

  • They don't want to be held accountable for what they say, or just want to start drama. Unfortunate that they act that way.

  • I completely agree! I think there should be an option to have no anon answers on your own questions because it seems like so many of them are just hateful and rude.

  • whats to be held accountable for? Almost every one of us whose responded so far is still ANON...we're screenames with some silly pictures attached. It doesn't say who we are or where we can be found in the real world? So its still Anon. But using Anon keeps the snarkiness right here in this thread and prevents any emails or chastising in future threads. Its an added layer of security.

    I don't like it when Anon gets abused either just to be mean, but Anon does serve its purpose. (ie being able to be honest about something without any backlash from those that may know you on here or IRL, among others)

  • I agree but those whom DO start/keep drama going Im sure CM knows whom they are.

    It's a constant thing on here. Anons just like to stir up trouble and not woman or child enough to post under their name is all.

    I say child cause you just don't know WHO is behind the screen name really.

  • Sometimes people who answer anon get attacked for pointing out the truth and reality of a situation, and if you answer with your name people never take you seriosly again. After you answer a question theyll post, dont listen to ______________ shes a bitch, even if its good advice

  • I agree if you want to make a statement sometimes people are so mean and cruel when you tell them your opinions, but at the same time I put what I think and I dont care whether people like it or not. No anoon,

  • BUMP :-)

    Answer by Truelove77 at 10:30 AM on Dec. 31, 2010

  • It's beacuse when we say our real feelings and someone else doesn't agree with us we get bashed for it. Not the stupid questions and stupid answers they give but more because someone doesn't agree with us. At my age there are alot of younger ladies that don't agree with me and what has always worked in my life and the lives of people in "REAL LIFE" around me. So, sometimes I will post anon answers because of that. I think there shouldn't be an anon button to answer but just for the questions as sometimes we know people on here that might see what we post.
