On GAG there are many people who love to help strangers. Who love to share their feelings with strangers. Who love to be part of a community that is caring, kind, and selfless.
On this website I find more "I am glad to find something good on the Internet" than anywhere else...and that is why I love this website. Because the people here care.
Now one of the great aspects of this website is the fact that for questions you can ask them Anonymously. This allows users to open up, to ask personal questions that they otherwise might not ask. It allows users to feel safe.
That is why there are questions about Love, about Sex, about Family and Friendships, about School, Work, and Yes...your nieborhood.
At GAG the anonymous button allows people to open up when it comes to their questions. But when it comes to opinions it should be emmited.
I recently read multiple opinions critizising someones myTake simply because he used the term "All" vs. "Some" people. They went on to tell him that they don't agree with his myTake simply because he used the term "All"
Do you know what all of these statements were posted under?
By allowing opinions to use anonymous is is allowing hurtful statements. Let someone put their face behind their actions. Make them stand up for their hurtful words, and the way to do this is to outlaw the anymous opinions.
So to the users of GAG to the administrators of GAG... we need to outlaw anonymous opinion. We need to stop hurting each other. And while GAG is a great website, it is FANTASTIC!!!!! It can be made better, and stopping hurtful opinions is a good start.
