While I am generally in favor of an anoymous option existing, I must say, I've recently gotten very annoyed by how it's not only being abused, but also overused.
I've noticed in the live feed, a large majority of questions are being posted anonymously. While this is perfectly fine in general, it often becomes problematic when the topic is rather controversial (which is often the case). Anonymous askers then very often tend to take advantage of their anonymity.
So, my suggestion would be to allow only a certain number of anonymous posts within a certain period of time. For instance:
-> You can post no more than 3 anonymous questions and no more than 10 anonymous answers within a month.
Or something like that. This is just an example that I'd personally be okay with.
What do you all think of this? Agree? Disagree? Why? Why not?
- I concur - give this woman a prize! (Please state what the prize shall be.)Vote A
- I decline - give this woman a consolation prize! (Please state what the consolation prize shall be.)Vote B
- I'm indifferent - give this woman whatever the fuck she wants! (Please don't state anything.)Vote C

I agree for the most part. There used to be a way to block anons, you didn't need to know who they were. They should bring that back.
Cause on controversial Q's, there's usually some heated arguments, so just blocking the person should be an option. No idea why the poop they got rid of it...
But yeah, everything in moderation.
Or what if there was a button that allowed people to vote on the person's anonymity?
Like say, if 5 people of each sex vote for the asker to come off anon, they don't have a choice, their Q instantly shows who posted it.2
