Do you respect cowards that use Anonymous accounts on Yahoo! Answers?

     If they ask real questions. I really don't understand the logic of anon since we don't know who they are, anyway. Unless they are ashamed of themselves.

    Not really. Most members here use pseudonyms. I doubt anyone knows who I  am.  There may be a few who are afraid, but most "Anonymous" have no reason to fear more than a thumbs down. The people who use "Anonymous" to spit or rant and run are cowards and don't deserve consideration.

    I do not consider using anonymous as cowardly. Having put forth an opinion and then receiving a bunch of bullying over it.

    why would they be considered cowards?

    No I don't.  I was just pointing this out to my friends Bill and Hank.

    And your question is? 

    I think Anonymous people just want to vent without being singled out by bullies, but that doesn't mean they're cowards. 

    Try it sometime, it's very freeing.

    No but I do hate people that try to make trouble over BML and post it on dinning out.

    A few times a day I will write a long reply to someone who is clearly having a hard time.  This will involve looking up information relative to the country they live in, providing useful links chosen to jive with the style of their writing and so forth.  Maybe it will help them, I hope so, and if not them maybe someone else who has a similar problem who finds my post.  It is therefore extremely aggrevating to have some ****** go through and report each and every one of my posts because they didn't like my suggestion of how to cook eggs or whatever.  I'm not posting un-anon again until they reinstall notifications and appeals.

    I don't consider it cowardly. I often go anonymous myself.

    It's not at all unusual to have someone who disagrees with me follow me around and give a thumbs down or even report every answer of mine that they can find. I have a thumbs downer right now, as a matter of fact.

    This is especially likely if they've asked for feedback on something they created and I said it needed work instead of praising every golden word.

    And I have been real-world stalked by a person I upset online, who got within about 35 miles of my home, had no further leads on finding me, and shot himself instead of me.

    So yeah, anonymity can be a very good thing.

    I have a lot more problems with thumb downers who TD anonymously to a good or correct answer than I do with anyone posting anonymous
