Why do people care if somebody is posting with their screen name or anonymous? what difference does itmake?
This is the Internet for goodness sake!

The internet is an anonymous place for people to post whatever they want.

Why are women here assuming that Imamother is a safe place?
There are trolls and men here. There are rude women who are just looking to stir the pot.

You can’t get away from that and you can’t get rid of them.

What’s with the anon obsession? And why do people even care?

And yes, I’ll go anonymously just because I’m in the mood and I can’t see how this would affect anybody.

Agree
If someone feels like posting anonymous, I don't see why it should bother anyone.

I believe poster Whatfor explained the reason well in another thread.
What bothers me most is anon as cover to say cruel things.

It ruins the integrity of the site. We are mostly posting under anon screen names. There are 2 people on here who know who I am IRL and that is because I chose to out myself.

When you suggest a recipe, a boys coat or state your opinion we create a persona in our mind as to who we are talking to. This site is fun because of the awesome personalities on here. When you go anon for no obvious reason.

I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with knowing what Teal posted under different colors in other threads, but I am mildly curious ...

ITA, op. I post under imamother when I feel I may be giving myself away. I don't want to take even a slight chance. I have my reasons and I don't have to explain myself. but I don't post mean things. I don't antagonize others or mock/bash/instigate so I feel I have a right to go anon even if others don't approve. if there's an option to go anon I have a right to chose to do so. many times I don't post if there's not amother option and that's okay too.
the only thing I do agree is that people should not be mean and hide under amother. otoh, people should not be mean to begin with.
and this I have no problem posting as amother but I would if that's what I felt like.

That’s my point.
There’s no integrity when it comes to websites.
Ever.
Women here have that illusion, but this is no safe place.

I would guess there are definitely men on here. I can't guess the number, but the security measures taken to ensure that we are all females is not exactly full-proof to put it mildly. Also, Husbands can access this site easily if the username and password is saved.

Simple. This site isn't about Ruchy Abramowitz chatting to Rivky Goldman, but NiceMom chatting to WiseWoman.

In other words, even though the people behind the SNs are anonymous, we aren't actually talking to the people but to the SN persona.

When someone chooses to post anon, especially when it's an attack, there is a feeling of an imbalance of power. Kind of like, I can see yours but I won't show you mine.

What if you are the same person who is so busy bashing all the amothers for going anon? as I said, we don't like it as it ruins the integrity of this site.
You have a valid question and opinion and are having a respectful mature discussion,. no need to hide. We all respect you.

I was at a seudah at a neighbor's house and the husband said outright that he's been on imamother. Now is it possible that he didn't log in but also possible that he did...

I agree. I guess I'm not as invested in this site as some other people because I really don't care who's anonymous and who's not. There are a few people who I really respect their opinions and am glad to see when they post, but the specifics of who is posting everyone else really don't matter to me.

how's it a cover? Admin can identify the screen name of each anonymous poster.
