  • LOL....I posted a question the other day and did it annonymous because I wanted to say what I said but I didnt want to be attacked about it.....Most mom's agreed with me but I DID have someone kind of flip out on me lol....I kind of wish I would have posted under my name but at the same time I'm glad I didnt because I think I would have developed a stalker lol

  • I always answer anon and post questions anon. I dont want to open up to strangers. I have some VERY SMALL groups I belong to and obviously post with some recognition there (though I give VERY few personal details).

    I have never regretted being anon due to vote ups... the points earned, I feel, are silly.  I would get the same satisfaction if people knew my screen name or not.

  • No....but I do answer anon..all the time. Only simply because I want to remain anon.

  • I have never answered anon. You asked for my answer and you got it. My opinions are my own and if you don't agree, that's fine.

  • Some people are too worried about points here. You don't get a real prize so what does it matter?

  • It doesn't, I'm not worried about points, but I just found it funny that one of the times I post anon, I get voted up. Everyone likes a little recognition every once in a while.
