I don't use it really. I have a couple times but that's it. I prefer to be real and not hide behind Anonymous. Also I will never post a question letting people comment anonymous again that's when the cruel people come out because they can hide behind it.
if i'm asking questions or posting on topics that are intentionally antagonistic, almost 100% of the time. i'm sick of people tracking down everything i've ever said and trying to make me sound like a shitty person or trying to "prove me wrong" based on something non-relevant i've said about a completely different topic. this site is unfortunately now full of trolls now just looking to prove everyone else wrong and jerks who are so deranged in their views that they should be locked up. it didn't used to be that way. I've sometimes let it get me upset, so now i just post anonymously, block people I find offensive, and move on.
Honestly I've only asked like 3 questions and answered like 6 times from these 3 years as a GAG member. Most were when I just stared, I was shy and not confident to answer some questions back then. lol
Never. absolutely never. and i hate when people use it. it shows they are too cowardly to express their opinion face to face. these are the kind of people who talk behind your back but shit their pants when they see you in person.
Very rarely. I don't really have anything to hide. I try to stay away from mentioning things I find too personal. If I can't answer the question without mentioning something I'm not comfortable with then I just skip the question.
In two situations. 1) When I'm seeking personal advice. And 2) if I want to post an answer in which I might include very personal details that I'd rather not be visible to everyone on GAG. Honestly though, I rarely go anonymous either way.
