  • I basically never go anonymous. Maybe once in a blue moon if it's too personal.

  • I don't go anon very often but if I do its usually because the question or answer is more personal/sexual because otherwise I get a bunch of creepy guy messaging me like "Hey sexy ;) "and it's just like, most of them are in their mid 20's so just no. Stop.

  • Sometimes it's because I know the answer is right but it won't be popular with the asker and sometimes it's because it's a sexual question and I don't want a bunch of thirsty guys in my inbox.

  • None of these lol. I go anon because sometimes people don't take me seriously because of my age.

  • I like to be able to aske questions about different scenarios and if someone were to look at my page they would think I was a whore, possibly a man, and a whole lot of other things. It's easier to get unbiased answers when you ask anonymously.

  • when i ask a question anonymously it's because i want people to answer without knowing who i am and thus their answers may be somewhat swayed because they know me.

    basically if i want to get really really straight forward answers (no sensitivities or bias's because the answerers know me)

    • Yeah, it's understandable

    • i answer anonymously almost never and ask questions anonymously very rarely as well. i thought there used to be a stat to see what percentage of your answers or questions were anonymous but i can't find it

  • Either to say something very controversial or something that can easily seem (unintentionally) to be self centered.

  • I'm anonymous for a few reasons;

    -I don't want to seem like I'm bragging
    -I feel like my question is a stupid question
    -I'm ashamed to admit to something

    and it doesn't really make sense, since really nobody knows me on this site personally, but I still rather go anon sometimes.

  • 1. Because I'm here to answer questions, not socialize or get a following.

    2. Because I want the arguments I make to stand on their own merits in each case and not be referred by or compared to other arguments I have made.

    I don't see why anyone on here would not want to be anonymous, it's the most rational way to be if you are here to share knowledge and experience.
