Because they're embarrassed by what they posted, and don't want their posts linked to their profile.
If you scared or embarrassed then they shouldn't post. Right?
It's true. I didn't post anonymously. We have usernames, which should provide a sense of anonymity, but some people are super paranoid, and think that their posts (in embarrassing topics) can be linked back to them (the real them, not just their online personality) so they post anonymously. They really want to answer, or they feel that they have some input that would be helpful, but they don't want it linked back to them. I guess it gives them a sense of added safety, especially since it's anonymous.
Couldn't have said it bettet
Lol, thanks. :)
i wonder why as well... neve understood that.we are ALREADYanonymous, since we use nicknames
Have an opinion?
When answering potentially embarrassing and/or sexual questions, or to keep people from potentially piecing together who you are IRL from the information revealed through your questions and answers.
People may be afraid to say what's actually on their minds if people could see who they are. Some of the most interesting comments and questions are on anonymous as well as some of the worst
Why not post anonymously?
No idea, I don't.
I personally think it's silly
Why care if someone posts anon? It has it's up side. Some people are more honest when giving opinions when anon.
its* (just in case someone cares) lol
Lol no one cares you are an anonymous
Then what's up with the question? lol
Because... Go on
Why post under a fake name Mr Possessed
At least I have my picture up there for people to see who they are talking too.
oh that makes sense
