Why even be anon?

Like why
I understand going anon for a very personal, sensitive topic on occasion but routinely.. What's the point?
Zero identity, it's like you are literally a nobody in cyber space giving an opinion lol, blue anons bitch about girls and are mtgow, pink anons omg pink anons!! Haha past couple days one pink anon kept accusing a couple of us of being catfish (wouldn't I use Chris hemsworth pics if I was lol) and another pink anon whining about hot guys on gag of bragging too much... which got me thinking, are people anon on gag to just vent out their frustrations about the world in a safe, personality disorder-riddled manner?

  • I don't see any other legitimate reasons other than the ones you stated at the beginning. I think the anonymous function should be limited to the sex and relationships topics only, and maybe also the health & fitness topic (as there are plenty of people who have embarrassing health issues and they don't want to be known. I certainly would use anon in that case).

    Other than that, there's no reason to be anonymous for any other question. Especially questions like "What TV shows do you guys like?"

    And there is ZERO reason to have the private opinion option on any question.

      I mean, I do buy the argument that private opinions are more bad than good -- in terms of the potential for harassment, or sketchy conversations with underage people, etc. -- **IF** it's unavoidable that private opinions are allowed.

      But, since "Allow private opinions" is something that can be turned on or off at will, that's what has convinced me that it's not a totally useless feature.

  • I really don't get the point of being anonymous either. I mean you can choose to not have any photos of yourself on here and withhold personal information like your name, and you're just as anonymous as you would be without hitting the anon button.

    People are people pleasers I guess. They don't want negative things associated with their name.

    I, on the other hand, could not give two flying fucks.

  • I've had my live feed and every other type of feed be nothing but anons. -_-

    People are going way too crazy with this and there needs to be a limit. How the hell can you have fun with anyone when they are just anon. I honestly believe majority of people that go anon are paranoid and feel like the whole world is out to get them. Majority of any scary thing they list being a reason why, I haven't face that at all the whole time I've been on gag.

  • Sometimes you just want to ask a question without people judging you. Especially if it's a personal or sensitive topic like you said. I haven't been on here very long but I recognize a lot of people already

      Who cares about being judged when you'll never meet them? I just don't get it

    • 3mo

      I know but still. I asked a personal question once and suddenly a bunch of guys started messaging me. Sometimes it's better to just be anonymous

  • Sometimes I go anonymous when I'm talking about something very personal.
    But I don't understand why does some people go to anonymous just to say something like "my favorite color is blue". There's no need of hiding your identity for something like that.
    I guess some users are so used to post anonymously that they are not able to show their identities anymore. It's an habit.

  • Never understood it really, maybe they might be afraid to say something thats on their mind for fear of the social justice warrior who knows. But me, I say whatever the fuck I want love it or hate I don't care.

    But hey some things I guess might be a bit too personal and they don't want 'certain' people to know is my guess.
