  • I think they should KEEP the ANON feature, cause honestly if you had a personal situation in reality would you want your neighbors to know, or would you want to keep it private, Anonymously?

    Nobody is suggesting they turn anon off completely. You'd still have the option to ask questions anon, and you'd still be able to answer anon, except in situations where the OP turned it off. In that case, you just skip those questions, and only answer the ones that don't care if anons answer.

  • ~*Yes*~ because those that usually post anon leave horrible remarks or vulgar language... so, YES, I would love to do away with anon responses, I can see after watcing people, including myself get jumped, harrassed, and stalked on here why questions are posted Anon... but I think the Anon feature just creates stalkers and trolls

  • I've seen just as rude and horrible comments posted by non anon users so I think you've got to keep the option open. Some people have an intimate question and won't ask w/o the anon button.

  • I'd prefer to not have anon answers if I had a question to ask, so I think the option should be there.

  • I have posted a anon answer and question cause it was waaay to personal for me to attach my name onto but I wanted to respond and ask a question but I was not rude. So I like that option open for those who are shy like me to give a way personal answer but does not want their name attached to it.

  • I agree with AJ........I mean it is there for the times when you want to ask or answer a question of a personal nature and you're asking for advice or giving it.

    But to continue to harass others by using that feature, saying horrible things and the like.......maybe those offenders should be warned.

    I think they should KEEP the ANON feature, cause honestly if you had a personal situation in reality would you want your neighbors to know, or would you want to keep it private, Anonymously? I might be really good friends with my neighbor, but I myself wouldn't them to know everything.

  • Eh..yes and no. Everyone deserves the right to post anonymously, but not everyone knows how to not abuse the option. I wish CM would just permanently take away the privilege the first time a person abuses it.
