Has anyone got a theory for why so many visitors to blogs feel the urge to tell you all the ways in which you are wrong, dumb, suck etc, but don’t feel enough conviction to have their name associated with their opinions?
It seems strange to me that someone would want to give another the benefit of their wisdom but not take credit for it. If I was the creator of such enlightened and pithy commentary as “you suck, leave the ‘sphere asswad” I am sure I would not only want full credit but to have it registered in case of plagiarism.
Of course not all comments are as intelligently crafted as that example. Some even are posted in quite agreeable language with only a minimum of cussing. Even so many people do not want to use their own names. It’s almost like they want you to know how they feel but do not really care for your reply.
I can understand someone posting anonymously if there is a chance their comments could get them into some sort of trouble, but otherwise …
Do you ever post anonymously and if so, why?
