I can't help but notice that on a daily basis at least 75% of questions asked are done so anonymously, even when some of them are extremely sensible. Maybe am missing the point or a logical reason why this takes place, hence my asking here. Thank You
Multiple reasons: * Some users don't find their user id anonymous enough and want to be totally "not here" as a person. They post 100% anonymous. * Some users use anonymity as their balaclava and post offensive or antagonistic opinions or questions anonymously. * And of course, some topics are too delicate to ask with your user name if you intend to be on here for a longer period of time. I rarely go anonymous, less than 1% of my posts.
it does not make sense to ask a sensible question anonymously. if it is a rate me, maybe. or a seriously sexual question, or embarrassing question, then fine, but sensible questions anonymously is not sensible, I agree.
It might be because of peoples opinions. If you kind of know them (GAGers) or are worried that they will judge you based of your question you don't want to be rememberd as the one with the stupid question :) but the ones with questions like you favorite color (who are anon) I just don't understand. Like why? XD
