The mystery of anonymous comments

There was an interesting discussion on another forum about why visitors to blogs post comments anonymously. These people seem to feel the urge to tell you all the ways in which you are wrong, stupid, crazy etc, but don't have enough conviction to have their name associated with their opinions.

Why would someone want to give you the benefit of their wisdom but not take credit for it? After all, if I was the creator of such enlightened and witty comments as "you are completely dotty" "What crap" I would not only want full credit, but to also have it registered in case of plagiarism.

I can understand someone posting anonymously if there is a chance their comments could get them into some sort of trouble, but otherwise ... isn't it simply a case of harassment or maybe more accurately cowardice? It's almost like they want you to know how they feel but don't want to have to face a reply from you.

I believe - if you really feel strongly about something - you should have the courage of your convictions - own what you say - be proud of what you say - and don't hide behind anonymous.

Isn't it nice to have your own little admirer.
This must mean you have really made it in the world, right up there with all the other famous figures in history who have an anonymous fanclub.

Blogs are there to reflect our appreciation of your efforts. I hope you keep up the excellent results to date

I agree. How lovely that someone has taken time out of their busy day JUST to write on your page. I wish I was as talented as you are, as I'm sure many others do. But alas, we can merely place comments on your page. I'm loving your new work!

P.S I have to place an "anonymous" comment as I can't for the life of me remember my password! LOL
