It's mostly younger less experienced people that fear being judged. As we age we lose that fear of being judged and just take things on the chin to get answers (Or simply go anonymous lol). School culture creates a stigma attached to openly seeking help and directing it at yourself so the trend continues into early adulthood.
I don't mind it, I just smile when the same people transition from third to first person. It's like a flower bud opening up :)
Meh. Either way they want an answer. So answer then move on.
That's nothing. it's the guy with multiple accounts who talks to himself over the accounts, posting replies to his own comments. He is the one that is properly mental. Especially because he's so violent in his posts.
It's easier to ask personal things and in greater most accurate detail, when one does not feel directly involved. Talking in third person helps create distance.
It could be to hide but as you say it's just Assumed to be about them anyways... I think in a lot if cases it just makes it easier psychologically. Especially when it's something one personally feel weird about- independent if what one might think other people will/ might think.
