What's your excuse for going anonymous?

I get it, sometimes questions are too personal but why ask, "what's your favorite color?" anonymously?

So what's your excuse?

Do do you go anonymous often?

  • I almost always post anonymously and will often close a question if the anonymous option is blocked. I am a private person and I don't appreciate someone wanting to take that option away from me - no answer for you if it means I have to be "public".

    I want what I have to say to stand alone and be as helpful as possible without worrying whether it is consistent with other things I have said. What I say is personal and from the heart.

    People get personal on GAG and sometimes insulting, I want to opt out of that. When I have gone un-anonymous I have been made to regret with abusive PMs by trollish GAGers.

    Anonymity is a privilege that too many on here abuse to post trivial nonsense but it is also a useful tool to enable though of us that are more reserved to speak our minds and be honest.

    I also don't have a favourite color, but I sometimes hate cyan.

  • Your right hand doesn't need to know what your left hand is doing.

    Aka not everyone has to know your business. And asking questions could lead to that.

  • I only go anonymous when I feel kind of uncomfortable with what I'm writing but still believe it would be helpful to the asker or whoever. Make sense?

  • I just don't want people to know that it's me, that's excuse enough. However, I can count on my fingers the times that I went anonymous, can't even remember the last time.

  • Sometimes I do it to avoid being blocked. If I disagree a bit more than usual. I think I don't do it often enough and that's where I got all my haters.

  • I go anonymous once or twice a year... some info has to be really personal before I'll hit the anon button.
    I think some user just want to be anon full time. A little bit exaggerated as far as I'm concerned :-(

  • I do when it's a question about sex or about something personal and the asker is anonymous but if they're not anonymous I generally inbox them because I don't care about xper or anything like that I joined this site to help people as much as I can

  • I only go anonymous when I go into too much detail about a situation I ask about.

    Like typically I try to word the question as a general one, but pertaining to something I'm going through. And sometimes I find myself delving into personal details about it on someones opinion. And sometimes it may have to do with a gag user I know, so, while they'll probably pick up on it if they do see the question, it still makes me feel better to remove my face.

  • I hardly go anonymous. I will sometimes retroactively when an opinion of mine blows up and gets crazy popular in a negative way. Sometimes I'll ask an off brand question anonymously.

  • I haven't gone anonymous since I first started using the site to be honest. When I did, it was because I was asking questions that were extremely personal, so I didn't want my username or photo attached to them.

  • I normally don't go annon.

    If I do it's because I'm asking something to personal that I rather not have others know. Which again is extremely rare.

  • What is your excuse for NOT going anonymous?
    Exactly...
    See, my point is that I don't feel like I have to give an excuse to anyone why I prefer using that particular feature.

    The option is there, so I use it.
    As to why I prefer it... multiple reasons.
    I have already explained them in other questions.

  • I've gained followers after asking a sexual question before and whatever other questions I asked they would send me messages about my questions and make them sexual in any way they could.

    I go anon 90% of the time

    • This this this pretty much sum up what I wanna say. Just because we ask sexual questions they assume we're open to sexting with any strangers.

    • Show All
    • @desidoll Yeah I had a lot of newer accounts that sent me messages just like the ones I blocked, some of them even said that they were back. It's definitely scary

    • Omg they don't even feel ashamed to admit that they're the same person? Seriously these creeps really need to get laid in real.
