    pros - You can speak your mind on some sections without being blocked for it. Though being reported is as likely.

    People don't know who you are.

    Cons - None when I use it.

    I don't know who someone is. I struggle to find the point in them using it, because sometimes they use it for absolutely no reason.

    Pro: Can ask or answer with sensitive/personal info without being easily identified later (even though we're anonymous by avatar

    Can reduce the amount of stalking and harassment from others if they dislike you

    Con: Hide behind to post trolling questions or answers

    Can't be blocked by others unless your posting style gives away your identity

    Even when answering Anon, the question asker is provided your yahoo nickname in the email they receive when you post your answer (if they opt for emails)

    Pros of the anonymous feature:

    •It can ensure that people don't get stalked

    •It can stop users spreading false rumours about the answerer if they are anonymous

    Cons of the anonymous feature:

    •Because anonymous users cannot be blocked, it means more troll answers

    •This feature can be used to stalk others (though to be fair it can also be used to hide from stalkers)

    •It can make users ask more troll questions, and we don't know who it is.
