@ajillity81:  Depending on the topic it maybe so someone doesn’t call troll or report the thread without getting the help the asked for.

I think they are saying it so that people don’t think they are trolls. People sometimes get suspicious when accounts with no previous posts start threads.

No, new bees don’t get as much respect/attention when they post something dramatic or super personal.

A bee going anon does so because something is heavy on her heart – she needs to speak but needs the community to know that she isn’t some chick from ‘East Internets’ looking to just stir up the Hive.

yeah itsa definitely to stop being thinking you’re a troll. Although frnakly any troll who has spent more than 5 mins here would now know to write “im a regular bee going anonymous for this one”

i dont trust brand new posters writing threads on a contraversial topics so i dont really respond

@ajillity81:  No but when you have been here for a while you learn the ins and outs of the hive. You watch everyone get all stirred up over a topic and then it gets shut down or deleted.

I think no matter what community area/space I was entering I would feel the waters out before I went and started talking about super personal things or controversial things. Its not that anyone is judged by the number of posts they have it is just usually a good thing to check if you are thinking it is a troll post.

Low posts + no anon comment + super controversial topic = troll (about 98% of the time)

I agree with everyone else. When a newbee’s first post is about how she wants sex 24 hours a day & decided to cheat with her FI’s brother, you pretty much know it’s a phony.
