I personally think we need to abolish the anonymous button. The ironic thing is, this site is obsessed with eliminating troll but almost every troll posts anonymously. By eliminating the anonymous button, we would reduce the number of trolls.
Plus, I feel this button gives people an excuse to talk "tough" over a keyboard. I don't understand why people feel then need to remain anonymous. Even if you're embarrassed, there is a very unlikely chance you know these people in real life or will ever meet up with them.

It's obvious to spot an anonymous troll. All you have to do from there is ignore the post.
Sometimes it's easier to share or discuss something anonymously, despite not knowing people personally on the site. The option to go anonymous could (when people are being genuine) could make it much easier for them to get something off their chest.
People are different; and it's an advice website - if someone would rather stay anonymous, why would you want to take their opportunity to discuss something personal, with peace of mind that they won't be found out, away from them?0
