Do you think this site would be better/worse/the same if we couldn't post anonymous questions/answers anymore? Updates:
Or if we were limited in the amount we can post a day as anonymous? Most Helpful Guy
We definitely need anon for the personal stuff or else some people wouldn't post.
We don't need trolling stuff posted hidden behind anon. There is a big % of anons posted that don't really make sense " My favourite colour is red - Anon". There is such a fuss made about certain types of answers that some are going anon to avoid the hassle. I honestly jump around on this one - Do I want to be known or not known? - To be frank I know why some people do it, I think it is fair to leave it at their choice.

i think it would be better. but some people wouldn't post at all so that would for sure be a downside. but it would probably prevent a lot of nonsense

It wouldn't be fair to subject users to show their identity if they dont want too, privacy laws have to always be implemented for a good quality application
Such as facebook, imagine you had no control over your privacy settings... that would be very bad
There would certainly be less trolling, but also possibly less activity. Not sure though! Some people are disheartened by the anonymous trolling, after all.
Worse, there wouldn't be as many comments.
i think it would be better since this would discourage the trolls in many ways.
but at the same time i think that might ruin the site as a lot of people here are too chicken shit to answer question without hiding their identity
it would be better, that way if a creep that goes anon tries to freak you out, you can block them
it would be the same. a lot of people are not using their real pic so it's the same as being anonymous.
Anonymous feature does have its uses, and I believe half the people, perhaps even more, on this website would stop using it if anonymous feature were removed.

I believe there's already a limitation over anonymous postings. It would certainly hold back the racists, sexists etc. We'd probably see less hate and trolling.
worse - less traffic, less very personal opinions
I think it would be better if GAG at least limited the amount of anon posts allowed a day.
If the anonymous feature was removed, I assume that people would use the site less.
i think it would be worse because people wouldn't be comfortable posting their true opinions/ asking for advice on things they dont want everyone to know about.
