I do not like anonymous posting and I am unsure of the benefit this site has with allowing it. If I had my way, I would not allow anonymous posting, everyone that posts would have to have a profile.
This does not mean people could not make a different profile for their more uncomfortable comments.
Though I must say, this is the internet so any profile you make is pretty much as anonymous as you want it to be.
But to your question, I try not to care if some is anonymous or not. I care more for their age and gender but I am suspicion of this information more from an anonymous poster than not so I suspect I may have a unrealized basis against anonymous posters than I thought I may have.
So yes, I probably do pay less attention to anonymous asker than a non-anonymous asker.
Like the other girls said I answer questions by content.
Other than that I go Anonymous most of time Because 1.) The question is of a sexual nature and I respect my partners privacy 2.) I feel like I'm more likely to get bombarded with controversy if someone disagrees with me and wants to follow and argue all my responses/questions. 3.) My question is not in need of privacy but my previous question was and thus my idenity could easily be revealed ~to sum up all the 3 I'm just a very private person with a tiny bit of paranoia thrown in.
Not really. I choose which questions to ask depending how interesting they sound, if the person really sounds like they're in a vulnerable place, or if it's a unique situation. The content is my focus; who's asking it is an afterthought.
I don't get the whole obsession here with anonymity/lack of anonymity.
I do not care if the person is anonymous or wuth their username, but the question does matter. How it is formulated. But I have come across that when I post anonymous questions I get much less random opinions than when I post with my username... maybe there is something in it then 😊
I don't think so, but I'm definitely more wary of anons, that's for sure. It does get frustrating sometimes though when people go anon for no apparent reason, for example it could be a question like 'What's your favourite food,' and there will be anons who literally say something as boring as 'pineapple'. People can do what they want, but it beats me :/
I just go down my feed and answer questions I might have some advice or an opinion on. I have never done anonymous on here, but I may have answered some anonymous questions. I don't really pay attention.
Its not about being bold most questions here are so personal and most people prefer to have their own privacy not to share their user name mean they want to mind their own stuff doesn't mean they are cowards
