Can someone explain what she meant? I didn't understand.

Someone answered another question earlier that if there were men here on CM, that there would be more Anon questions/answers.

I didn't understand that logic. Why would using there screenname openly give them away one way or another? Its just a screenname.

Why would they need to be Anon to post questions and answers, its not like we can see them

  • I think she just meant that men probably wouldn't go through creating a screenname, or using one for answering questions? That's the best I can come up with.

  • Maybe because the men are perverse or trolling?

  • true
    unless someone you know, knows you are on here, you can post with a screen name and still - no one knows you

  • I first heard of this site on Yahoo Answers when a guy said he was setting up an account on here to troll. So, they do set up accounts. A lot are probably too lazy to go through the hassle as answer as Anonymous.

  • She probably meant they troll using anon.

  • they don't need to be anon, and I've seen a few men post with their sn's.. if I notice it's a man I report them and they are removed from the site.

  • Anyone can post under an assumed name.

    Take dating see a pic of a gorgeous guy or woman and read through their profile. Unless they word things really funny you cannot figure it out that its probably some one in a Third World Country!

    Usually in adverts like that their wording is off along with spelling.

    But on a forum such as one knows whom is really behind the name or profile. People steal pics and make their own all the time.

    The joys of the internet! You just never know !

  • @hazel... I doubt that stops them from coming back. I would only really do that if they were causing problems. If they are just harmless people like the rest of us..pfft. They knew enough to create a screen name before, they'll know enough to do another one and just be wiser about keeping their gender to themselves.
