If you want to remain anonymous then replying to these questions will make things annoying and will have your friends asking you what you really look like or where you really live. Not fun. I want to remain anonymous to some users, but to a handful I do not mind telling them.

Why does it matter? Its not like your ever gonna meet any of the people here anyway. Let em do whatever the hell they want, and if you dont like it, just dont talk to them.

There is just a line that a person shouldn't cross, especially kids, because the online world is full of psychopaths, pedos, perverts, stalkers, and what not...They can hide so well online, and since you don't see them, all you see is their username and their most probably fake online persona, you actually don't know to who or what you are talking to. I'd never tell someone my address, I'd never tell someone my whole name, I'd never meet up with anyone of the online world, unless I could be 100% sure that what they represent online is as well what they are representing in the "real" world.

Why be anonymous unless you have something to hide? Or unless you want to be an asshole or a creep and don't want people to find out who you really are? Either way it's just weird.


Well, some want actually to stay anonymous so that the CREEPS won't trace them down, you know these stalkers, pedos, psychopaths...I don't think that it would be so good if a person like that knew your address, or your whole name....

Its only anonymous to a certain exstent... Do you really want a bunch of strangers knowing all about you...? With no effort... Them just knowing where your from, where you live, how you look and everything about you... Letting them know bits about you little by little is a good way to make long lasting friends... You can't just throw yourself to the world... Now thats what I call weird.

I know the internet is dangerous, but you can show your true self without giving out too much info. I would never give my address or my full name (although, since I'm in college people could easily figure that out from my school's roster) but I don't mind showing who I am and what I look like bc I'm proud of both.

I think minors should be careful about giving out their full names and even pictures, at least until they are late teens bc like you said there are perverts out there.

Also if you look at the statistics, people who are molested or raped by some pervert are usually victimized by people they know, not some crazy joe on the internet. So it seems as if the internet may not be as dangerous as some people's family and friends.


Yah, I don't deny that the enemy could be in your own family, but the numbers of reports about kids who have met up with someone from the online world and the bad turn out of this, or have been "molested"/etc. online are quite rapidly raising. And actually it's mainly the teenagers who get involved with this kind of problems, which is quite logical if you think about it.

Of course if you can live with the consequences that are automatically coming up if you tell some random person too much about yourself, or show too much about your real life, then it is okay, but you are most probably aware of your actions, you are "mature" enough to realise what is going on, while other kids and teenies who are under the control of their hormones barely realise, or just don't "want" to see through it, really should care about their anonymity.

I mean there is nothing wrong if you tell someone that your name is Catherine, Jenny, or w/e...because that's not really enough info, unless you would have a really really unique name...and it's actually good if someone is honest about their age..but there are some lines...that shouldn't be crossed.
