We've all done it. Commented on an anon user's post and then coming back later to see if they've responded. If you're like me, you forget little things pretty quickly and that includes going back to check for a new comment for you. It's kind of a hassle.
Anons should be able to mention users too right? Why isn't this allowed anyways?
It use to be that way. You can probably see that it could annoy people to be mentioned by people that are anon. It didn't bother me when gag allowed it. Honestly I would like to see less anon in general though.
i thought so at first, but then i like the idea that the anon is less functional. that way i can actually know who's mentioning me. some anions are quite the stalkers by the way, especially the guys. like a lot of them will talk to me and refer to my answers on questions that i answered ages ago.
