I can understand asking a question in anon like myself, especially if its a sensitive issue etc, but some people have fantastic answers, but answer them in anon, so no one gets to know who the person is with great wisdom. I could follow them if i knew who they were, cos i have benefited by their advice? Why do you answer questions in anon?
Why do some people answer a question in ANON?

You are asking this anon. It's a good question.
I answer anon because in this day and age people hate the truth. They hate reality, which is difficult and painful, and will lash out against anyone who tries to tell them the truth.
Some times people listen, but it's hard to tell what type of person you are talking to, even in real life.
It reminds me of a Bible verse: Matthew 7:6 Ye may not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor cast your pearls before the swine, that they may not trample them among their feet, and having turned -- may rend you.
"Rend" here means "Tear you to pieces".
People may respond violently to you trying to guide them into a more difficult, but ultimately beneficial way of thinking or living, because in their foolishness they have convinced themselves they are living rightly, when the end of their lifestyle is disaster.3
Because they lack self confidence and they're not sure whether you will like it or get hurt.3
Well, it's a privilege a person has to be anonymous and some do it for protection from others or if you look some people can add your questions/ answers/ comments to Google, Facebook, Twitter , So yes they can get out there.3
People be scurred2

Because people give there advice and dont want anything in return they are just happy that they can give someone a little help1
Sometimes they are not confident in their answer
So they block has a way to not get any negative attention.1
Why is asking a non-personal question in anon any better than answering one anon?5
I understand where you're coming from. I usually find that people go anon in sexual topics or if they're going to say something which could potentially offend.0
I almost thought about being a anon here because I would get bullied a few girls for my views or not having perfect grammer but then I dasied not to0
Simply because they love their privacy1
If they ask as ANON
the past has revealed many more trolls & jerks looking to waste Good Samaritans' time
so I go ANON with comments, just in case1
I always post anonymously on here. I'm here to help people, and apparently my answers are helpful a lot of the time. It doesn't matter who I am, or what I look like. I'm also not here to make friends. I've been on this site for about three years. It happens that sometimes I see some drama between two users and it always makes me glad that I am not known on this site. Being entirely anonymous helps people to stay more objective. I want to help people who need help, and that's all that I want.0
This isn't Facebook.. honestly I dont understand why people even put their real pictures up...0
How about we turn the question around. Why do you ask a non sensitive question all the while hiding behind anonymity?1
Very hypocritical of you. You are anon complaining about people posting as anon. There are some really good questions where users post anon too. I don't see you complaining about that1
