Can we just do away with the anon button on the reply status?
Allow people to post a question anon and reply back to their own question anon, but remove the option to reply to another's question anon.
I am sure that y'all are very busy and don't have time to police the rude people on this site so why not just remove the option? Obviously the point system did not work in making people earn the right to use it since they are still abusing it.
I'm not even suggesting that you eliminate the offenders profile or put them on probation since they can always just make up another bogus one and continue.
Before the points started allowing individuals to post anon, there were far less mean and rude answers and less sttacking.

They won't take it away because if someone wants to answer a sensitive question, they might not want to do so publicly. And there are also people who post everything anonymously because they don't want anything "attached" to them on the internet. I agree with anon above me, you can't punish everyone for a few people's bad behavior. And nobody is anonymous to CM, they can see everything.
