    What do you think about forums where the posters are all anonymous?

    meaning, nobody knows who each other is. Do you think it will be a good thing or a bad thing?

    Conversations will still take place but this way, people can't judge by username, picture, past posts by the same user, etc.

    That takes a lot of the social aspect out of the forum. It would be like talking to someone on the other side of a wall, and you never knew who it is. Seems to me it would also increase flaming by a ton. If you're anonymous, you don't have to answer for what you say.

    That's true but it seemed to have made 4chan a very well known but controversial forum. I guess it comes down to what the webmaster wants to deal with.

    I would gladly take part in an anon forum. They are sometimes fun, very fun to troll!
