"When can/should I post anonymously/as Incognito?"


Recently, some concerns have been raised about the use of the "Incognito" feature. This feature was created to give members a "safer option" for opening a topic to seek advice or perhaps vent a little.. Members - especially new members - often do this b/c, understandably, they're not sure how their comments will be received or are concerned about being recognized by someone they know in real life. It's an excellent feature, IMO, for helping some newcomers "get their feet wet" here, etc.

However, some people have expressed reservations about members posting "anonymously" w/in other members' threads. No doubt, some posters do this, now and then, for the same reasons mentioned above.. And often, it may be just as understandable.

But please remember that the "I Just Joined - What Now?" thread says the following:

Note: do NOT join and make ALL of your posts anonymous. It is appropriate to use the anonymous feature when starting a thread and asking for advice.... If you started a thread as anonymous and want to continue your replies in THAT THREAD ONLY as anonymous then you may do so...

Also, lately, a few members have fallen into the habit of posting Incognito for what appears to be no reason. Is there really any point in posting Incog just to ask another member if they have "any updates," for example? Or telling them they're doing "a good job!?"  No.. It doesn't seem to serve to do anything, except irritate other posters, which, I trust, no one here wants to do.

Please don't use the Incognito feature unnecessarily. And, in general,  please avoid posting anonymously in another member's thread, unless you really feel you need to.

Thank you. :)
