I dont really get it? Essentially on here you are just a username and an avatar and maybe a little bit of personal information in your profile (nothing more than what you want there)? Is that not already anonymous enough?
And if by chance someone reads all your posts, and figures out who you are in real life, guess what, they did that because they actually know you that well, so again, what does it matter?
Anyways, I would like to know peoples reasoning behind this :)
just wanted to say a blanket thank you to everyone who has responded so far =) i didn't quite realise the harassmen, unwanted advances, and hate that people, especially some of the girls have to put up with behind the scenes...
People like to start fights here and insist my opinion is wrong. There's a lot of emotional basket cases here who goes ga ga just because they can't deal with an opinion that isn't politically correct. I'd say they seriously to get a life and calm the eff down.
They may be giving a personal answer or question and not feel comfortable even if it is just people here. Some people are even anonymous so they can post something nasty without others knowing it is them.
i dont know man probably cos they are embarrassed or something.
After becoming more known on the site, some people like to mess with people and posting anonymously keeps that kind of "harassment" at bay, for the most part. Also, some questions and opinions are very personal and people don't feel comfortable sharing it without hiding even their internet identities.
I get so angry when people post anonymously.
No. I have people who know me in real life following me around on this site. It started with an interested guy and a jealous girl trying to ruin my reputation so she can take him from me.
Sometimes if I'm low energy that day or something and I answer a topic I think will be controversial, I'll do it anonymously. I feel less obligated to return over and over to respond to the comments on my posted opinion.
And I also do it accidentally sometimes. If you click the grey space to the right of the word "Anonymous" it will check it for you. I accidentally hit the (massive) touchpad on my laptop more frequently than I'd like to admit, don't notice, and end up posting anonymously lol.
I have been harassed by some users for my views on certain issues so I just find it easier to go anon. That said, I'm not sure I understand why you have a problem with it. As you said, we are all anon here anyway unless we intentionally share personal info so why do you care whether people show our user names?
I agree. You don't need to post anything anonymously. You are already anonymous on here anyway. What a bunch of low life retards. I've never been so disgusted by all these anonymous people in my life. Who cares if someone on GaG thinks poorly of you? As if you will ever meet them. People need to show some balls and just say what they want without going anonymously. Bunch of morons these days.
