From brief time spent here on this forum I get a feeling majority do not wish to reveal themselves? Dubious identities? Someone hiding behind a mask? Well, why is it so?

I can't speak for others but I post anonymously when...
1. The question is requesting very private, personal information.
I have no duty or obligation to share my personal stories and experiences with a bunch of strangers online: I CHOOSE TO. I choose to share parts of myself to others but I don't have to. Therefore, if I'm being generous enough to give the gracious gift of self, I feel that the option for it to be private is simple respect and courtesy on the inquiring Asker's part.
2. I want unfiltered, unscripted, completely honest answers without people who've seen me around here tweaking their response to fit their assumptions, speculations, and guesses about my personality and the way I may or may not respond.
3. I'm not sure if the QA has the maturity level and capability to be humble to openly receive my message so sometimes, in a weird way, they feel better with an anonymous face on the other side of the post. Especially if they've seen me (or others) consistently express a certain viewpoint on a topic. They may be less open and vulnerable when they have seen me strongly oppose _____.0
