ANON FOR DUMMIES

I'm going to try to explain this as simply as I can, bear with me, all you anon-haters.

Anon-haters often say, "Why are you anon? Why not stand up for what you believe?" Here's the thing: When I post anon, it's because I don't want people knowing specific details about me, or finding me IRL based on info I post.  It's a safety measure.  Makes sense, right?

Here's the really tricky part: Some people don't want any info linked to them at all.  None.  Maybe they have security issues through work, maybe they've been stalked before, I don't know, and it's not my business, or yours.  Because of this, they need to post anon every single time, whether they're saying "Yes, I do like chocolate, as a matter of fact," or they're spewing racist nonsense.  It isn't always about the comment they're making, but sometimes just the fact that they wish not to be found online.  If you don't like it, allow me to direct you to some groups on here that do not have the anonymous option.

I hope that clears it up.  If not, look, a donkey!

I agree :-)

I have solely posted as anon since the day I joined this site. I have had issues in the past with cyber stalkers, which was why I was drawn to a site that allows me the keep my anonymity.

yeah I can see that, but MOST people ESP ones in this group tend to use ANON as an excuse to bully people or be total assholes.

I'm almost silver and have posted anon all but a handful of times. My location is rare on here and I don't want to get stalked or harassed.

*ftr never done any fake troll posts or "kill yourself" replies
