If you go against someone’s opinion on the anonymous option you automatically have no value in your opinion because you don’t even have the confidence to attach your name to your beliefs.
Can we just go and have a big bowl of NOPE! on this please? I’m sorry, but there are some people, namely those who have that little confidence you mentioned, who do not want to make other people angry. They don’t want to lose the closeness they may have with that first person who had the opposing opinion or they just don’t want to lose that opportunity.
Because let’s face it, not everyone is willing to let their flag fly proudly. Some of them like having little flags pinned to their shirts or on their bags, not flying behind them like its a cape in a comic book. Some of them like having medium-sized flags that they can fly on certain days that celebrate their beliefs like those plastic flags you get on the Fourth of July. But not everyone flies their huge flags outside their yards up their one hundred foot flag pole that say their opinion in big freakin’ letters. Not everyone does that.
So, the confidence that someone has to actually state their beliefs, whether it be attached or not, is a lot and that value for that opinion is valid no matter what. We’re not pawn shops for opinions, we can’t place a value on them.
