I was just wonder how often do you Gaggers ask questions or comment as anonymous? Why do you do it? It's the internet why do you care to hide?

I have asked a few Questions being here for nearly 10 months now, only Once being the masked maiden. Other than that, I never went behind the curtain with anyone in That Respect, and my Last Inquiry I made sure no one else did either.
It's no one's bees wax if they don't want to show themselves. I only did it in Answering a Question or two, for I didn't want to get into a head lock with anyone with anything... However, everyone has their own motives for doing it, maybe fearing the same thing as this, or maybe even 'Fearing' it could go further like a little Stinging after the fact------Harassment, that is. I have heard plenty of stories on here... xx0

Firstly, no one here is entitled to know who I am. I come here and volunteer personal information to help others out however I don't owe it to anyone for them to see who I am. So with that said, reasons I post anonymously are...
1. If I'm giving personal information. Even though technically I'm anonymous from my username, the right person can go to my profile and hack into my accounts, seeing personal information about me and knowing that it's linked to this account.
2. I've seen the user get hostile and irrational around here. This is a big one. I may want to participate, but if I've seen the user go around here and be nasty for no legitimate reason or start drama over petty, minor, silly things, then I'll answer anonymously. I don't want to be blocked from future interesting topics simply because someone has a pathetic emotional capacity.
3. I intend on being brutally honest and the QA's consistent tone with everyone on the post suggests they can't handle it. I try to always be as tactful as possible, but sometimes... NOT ALL THE TIME, but many times that doesn't matter. There are some QA's who don't really want honesty, they want you to validate them and make them feel okay about the wrong path they've chosen.0
I've actually never posted as anon. If I'm not comfortable answering a question as myself, I just won't answer it period.
I've only asked one question on here so far, but I'm pretty shameless and don't get embarrassed that easy so I doubt I'd ever need to ask anything anonymously.0
I don't ever, unless I pressed that anonymous button by mistake. I think I've done that once or twice.0
I post anonymous the odd time.0
I very rarely post anonymously.
When I do so, it's to share something I don't want GAGers knowing about me in order to help the Asker.2

I never ask questions anonymously. Out of over 700 opinions/comments given only six were anon.1
I've never posted as anonymous. I'm not saying I won't in the future but so far I haven't had a reason to.0
