I thought I noticed a trend here in who answers anonymously more often. I decided to find out by counting a bunch of questions and answers for a block of time yesterday. What do you think? I'll post the answer to my survey in 24 hours.
- More girls ask/answer anonVote A
- More girls ask anon; more guys answer anonVote B
- More guys ask anon; more girls answer anonVote C
- More guys ask/answer anonVote D
Questions asked anonymously: Girls: 35 of 50 = 70%; Guys: 13 of 26 = 50%
Questions answered anonymously: Girls: 109 of 277 = 39%; Guys: 83 of 242 = 34%
In other words, 66% of the anonymous questions were by girls. The answers were basically even: 54% of anonymous answers were by girls. Either answers A) or B) would be acceptable. Almost everyone chose one of these two.
"In the last 30 days 63% of the anonymous questions were by the girls.
In the same time period number anonymous answers were almost perfectly evenly divided between girls and guys 50%-50%"
I'm surprised by how close I came for such a relatively small sample!
I had guessed that many more girls asked anonymously and many more guys answered anonymously. I was half right.
