Are we back to this childish bullying again?  I believe it is only control freaks who have issues with anonymous questions being asked and feel the need for snark!  If you have a valid question and feel the need to ask it anonymous, that is the reason the option is there.  Thank you ActiveRain for providing same.

There are very valid reasons to remain anonymous. Have done that but it was not well received by members, so I refrain.

No. Questions can be asked anonymously, and in some cases they should be.

Perhaps not invalid but clearly dishonest...you know....like what you are doing right now. No reason EVER for a anonymous question. Most ethical members are also smart enough to alter the facts to make a question untraceable.

Anonymous questions are for those with 'not honorable" intentions...

HOWEVER, the powers that be have declared ANONYMOUS questions are welcome and suggests we need MORE of them, And if anything I am certainly a team player.

Anon,

Please see this thread where your question is discussed in detail,

especially, see comment from Active Rain Member Support.  

No your Anon Q is definitely not invalid.  But you will get jokes if you're "asking for a friend."  LOL
