This may sound like one of those bullshit questions but I genuinely don't understand why some people comment or post questions anonymously. If it's really personal & you don't want people to message you about it I can kinda understand but it's not like anyone knows who you actually are & especially if it's something really trivial. All answers welcome I may just be insensitive but I just don't get it.
I genuinely don't understand why this is such a hangup for people on this site. Like seriously, forget being some other group that society hates... GAG people just can't get over not knowing who's behind the anons on here. Anywhere from "yeah I understand people want to be private"... all the way to "people are just cowards that hide beyond the anon mask".
Seriously man, get over it. You might think "if they weren't anon, there would be some kind of profile to identify them (or block them) but I still wouldn't really know them... so why do they still do it?"... because they can. The more you try to understand it, the more mad you'll make yourself.
So yeah, you don't get the anons. I don't get the frustrations, distrust, and aching curiosity with people who can't just leave it alone.
No your right I don't get the point. Its not like I'm going to look at your username, hack into the system and find out your personal details, find your name/address etc., jump on a plane and come find you, and then tease you about the boy whose giving you mixed signals or whatever. There's no point, but whatever :)
There are questions where if people knew that I'm the Asker, they'd be biased in their answer. It's better if they don't know who they are talking to sometimes.
Anonymous answers, well sometimes people just don't want to show their identity when they provide an answer because someone might navigate to it from their profile and see it and they don't want to share that with the world and have it linked to them, so they post as anon. Some others just use it to tell you how "disappointed they are by your question" just to try to tick you off. Technically I'm getting annoyed by that so I tend to block anonymous answers unless the question is specifically about something embarrassing or close to heart.
