I have noticed in the past months an increase in the number of anonymous posts. That reflects the paranoia by the person which I cannot relate. An anonymous post gives me the feeling that I'm talking to a wall. And the vast majority of those posts have no reason to be anonymous. Of course people will say that those anonymous people do have a reason. Personally I think that's a bunch of sh.. It is especially irritating when the anonymous person says send me a personal message. Obviously they have no idea what they're doing. I would like to propose that from this day forth no one answer an anonymous post

On the internet, although I myself personally on a website like this, WANT to be able to be seen, associated with and socialized with, others on this site may not feel or value the same sense of community as you or I do.
Plus for those who have had bad experiences on the internet with stalkers, harassers and the like, an extra anonymity layer of not having a traceable profile attached to a post, eases ppl's mind when using a forum site like GaG.
Don't be so angry at walls, aka anonymous users! It's so silly. :-P0

I don't really mind it unless the person is being rude. I understand that some people ask questions or discuss very personal things on here, so they don't want their name or face attached to those things. Other users just don't want their identity out there, period, which is totally up to them. They're not here to make friends, just get advice as needed, or they are that nervous about being online and/or having people they know in real life see them on here. I get it as long as they're not being disrespectful.1
