Why So Many Anonymous Posts?
Hey guys....been curious about this for a while and wanted to open this up for discussion.
Why do so many people post on here anonymously?
To begin with, WSO is already an online forum with anonymous screen names. Adding an additional layer of anonymity seems a bit much. I understand using an extra layer of anonymity if you want to discuss something controversial or very personal that could give away your real identity. But, I look at the anonymous posts and 80% of them are not very controversial opinions.
Have we gotten to a point in society where we're even afraid of giving non-controversial opinions on an anonymous online forum??? That's just crazy. In a way, I think it says something pretty frightening about our state of the world.
As a very opinionated member of the community who has no interest in this level of anonymity, help me understand this.
