  • I think they really feel that way but wanna be anon b/c they dont want their friends to know how they really think. Did that make sense?

    Honestly, I show my colors through & through. If I dont want someone to know something then I simply dont answer.

  • I think they really feel that way, but are too much of a coward to stand behind their opinion. The only time I feel going anonymous is appropriate is if you're sharing something really personal, and don't want everybody to know who you are (like, being raped, something like that).

  • I only answer anon when its something personal. But I think that a lot of people really feel that way they just aren't very nice people a lot of times.

  • I answer anon plenty, and I say what I mean.
    but then if I'm less than nice it usually is during a bad day.

  • I don't know. I guess it depends on the question.

  • I think it's funny when people hide behind the anon button to scrap out a personal beef they have with you, instead of sticking to the question. It's stalkerish too.

  • I never answer anon but have asked a few questions anon just because I didn't think it mattered that everyone knows whos asking. If it's a touchy subject, I just say what I think or I don't answer at all.

  • I answer anon when I know my opinion is not what people want to hear. It probably does come across as rude but it is my honest opinion.

  • I've thought about answering some questions anon just so I could tell them my real reaction to their posts, but then I just decide to move on and not answer it. Except once, when I went back as myself and 'was me.'
