why anonymous?

I'm new to this group, and I noticed that a lot of people post anonymously. I was just wondering why? You are behind a computer anyway. Isn't that anonymous? I'm not trying to be rude or anything, just curious. Is there a reason for it?

I think it may be because some OPs get crazy when  they don't like a reply. They do things like message them BS or taunt them in other posts.

Because the women on this site are crazy...literally. They'll follow you to every post/reply you make, find out your personal info, contact your spouse and other family members, post where your kids go to school, and the lovely list goes on. No thanks.

Why not?

So, maybe its just so the op can't confront a poster with a mean message? For example, sending a nasty private message, maybe? I guess that makes sense. Seems kind of cowardly, though. If you want to make nasty comments, you should be able to deal with the nastiness in return...

the only time i post anonymously is if i'm telling a story about someone who could possibly be a member.  i'd hate to talk about the nastiest bath tub i've ever seen & the owner of it see the post.  otherwise, i use my own SN.  my life's not really juicy enough to require anonymity.

You are going on the assumption that everyone here is normal and socially adept. You would be incorrect.

Unfortunately it happens A LOT. I've been a member for a few years now and these women scare the shit out of me. The list of stalkerish crap that goes on would make your stomach churn. There are women who have files on their computers full of every post/reply certain members make. Who the hell has time for that other than a psycho?!! I know that some anons just troll around but it's the safest route IMO.
