Because I was warned not to put my own name by a computer...
In some cases, some things may just need to be said and it doesn't always matter who says them. Sometimes it may be that the person is humble and doesn't want or need the attention. Sometimes people are just cowards.
No one likes negative feedback or people to disagree with them <br />
Also lots of people go overboard when they dont like what people have to say or are about. <br />
We have learned to hide ourselves as a safety measure in this society especially when it comes to internet
Because maybe they don't like their real name so they create a fake one, because of how people can track them down and kill them or watevr.... idk, it easy they can bully and nobody knows who it is :P
I think it's mostly because people can track you down or recognize you by your name. And there are times when you will feel more free to express yourself if you can do it with a degree of anonymity. People don't want unpleasant ramifications for expressing their opinions, and the only way to effectively avoid those is to remain nameless. This especially makes sense if you are criticizing company policy or your superiors, and you don't want to lose your job. It also makes sense if you don't want to get hate mail or unpleasantness from the people who might strongly disagree with you.
TROLLS ! Who would post their details ? That's idiocy ...
