What would be the reason for this?

Some people apparently go to the pains of finding out who answers Anon on here. Even if you did find out who it was, what would be the purpose and how does stalking the person make you in the right?

They posted Anon for a reason, to not get flamed or emailed, etc (assuming it was a non-snarky comment).

Even if you do find this person, what do you know about them beyond their screenname and picture attached to it? Nothing, we're all still Anon. I just can't see why someone would go to the effort other than to be snarky to the "now known" Anon poster.

  • I've said the same thing, we are all anon regardless so I don't see the point in getting upset over the anon feature.

  • Someone who's bored or needs a different hobby? IDK, seems like a lot of trouble for nothing.

  • I totally agree with you Zoeyis.

  • Honestly, everyone should drop the subject of those who answer anon. It seriously doesn't make any difference if there is or isn't an anon feature. It's here and people use it, so just let it be.

  • People who make this kind of effort have way too much time on their hands.

    Answer by zebbiebug at 9:09 AM on Jan. 10, 2011

  • I have no idea why someone would do that.

  • I wasn't even aware that people could figure out who posted anonymously...but I don't mind the feature. I think people take the postings on here too seriously.

  • it's time wasted and really no point... why stalk the stalker.
