Have you notice that women who use Anonymous, are very rude, nasty, and try to hurt someone by calling names?
Maybe it should not be used anymore?

What do you think should they take out Anonymous?

  • I think it is a good idea, but some people abuse it. Sometimes I will answer questions anonymously because it has embarrassing or personal information in it...I think, if used that way, it is fine, but cowards use it to hide behind and that is when it gets abused.

  • I don't quite understand it to be honest, why write as anonymous when online you're basically anonymous anyway...

  • Just like they monitor the answer section here, maybe they should take a few extra seconds to check the anonymous questions.

  • What difference does it make? Every screenname on here is basically anonymous to me anyway. Why would I care if a nasty comment is coming from an "anon" screenname or "freakymominTN"? Same difference.

  • i agree on the most part... but i've seen some woman use it cause they don't want to put a face to there problems... but i think if ppl are going to try to be hurtful and rude then they should put a face to it... cause then i just think your a coward.

  • I see no need to post anonymously . But I am not going to tell Cafe Mom what to do.
    But I personally think it encourages people to post mean ,hurtful comments.

  • I really don't think it should be taken out because not all anon are rude but I do understand and I also understand the need to use it sometimes because some women tend to stalk certain people on here and if they took it away I think that some people wouldn"t answer the questions and get some much needed advice
