Most people here ask every question anonymously now. For me, it takes away part of the fun of answering, since I try to take into account the information I read on profiles, such as age (really, a 24 year old should get a different answer than an 18 year old), ethnicity, relationship history, past questions they may have asked, and any other information I can glean.
Not to mention that many people who aren't anonymous now keep their profiles private and unless you are friends, you are still answering only the slight information usually provided in the question itself.
This is fine for people asking the sex questions, but any question that asks for some sort of reflection or analysis becomes difficult to answer when you know little or nothing about the person asking..
I love it when people ask the 'rate me' questions anonymously, posting a picture of themselves at the same time.
Maybe only three anonymous questions a week? I mean, how many questions are really of such a sensitive nature that you need to be anonymous? For example, questions about breaking up, if you're broken up, why do you have to discuss it in secret? We're mostly strangers living far from you..All your friends already know all the details, most likely.
If I'm 'flying blind', depending only on the few lines of a question without knowing anything about who is asking, I can't give very insightful suggestions.
And there's the problem of abuse from people who post anonyously. Many of them behave and ways they wouldn't if we knew who they were. Even if we just 'knew' their avatar, we'd know the source.
