I go anon some times, but I think I have good reason, but then I see people posting anon on something where I wouldn't think it's necessary at all.
Q-"What's your favorite color?"
(Okay, I've never seen THAT situation, but pretty close! :P )
What do you think? Do you do this? Why?
And I'm 99% sure you can turn off friend request & people able to send you messages who aren't your friend.

Personally, I tend to use it when I'm trying to keep personally things anonymous, I don't want something openly coming back to bite me in the rump, or I am trying to say something, but am concerned that I may offend someone and not be able to explain myself well enough to keep from coming off as a jerk instead of just trying to tell it like it is. I'm not one to go out of my way to be overly blunt or malicious, but for example people have asked for opinions of politics, or how they look. I wouldn't just call someone a "lard ass" or something, but I'd say hey, you look to be over weight, but if you're concerned about it, and want to ditch some weight as I personally have, message me for tips and stuff, maybe I could help. Then if they want the advice I message them or leave my user name in a message.
Some people see that as extremely insulting so I don't want that attached to me, just like I don't want people taking this answer the wrong way so I went anon.
I hope this answers your question I wish you good luck in finding an appropriate answer to your question. Cheers.0
