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.1

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.1
