What's the point of this post? you're obviously new and haven't gotten help from this being anonymous, but I have. PT, hope you ignore Purdey.

i think people really enjoy the anonymity of PT. there are certainly some places where your identity is posted, but in the community section anyway, I personally enjoy being able to say whatever i am feeling/thinking without the fear of being personally prosecuted.

And what would be the point of knowing who wrote the posting? So you know whose public log to flame? There are some nasty and unhelpful people on here (there's gotta be a few snotty know-it-alls in every crowd, e.g. "cow's milk is for baby cows" girl and let's not forget the snippy "search your subject first before starting a new thread" bee-in-bonnet girl) who take it to an unpleasant level, but it's worth putting up with those types to have anonymous access to this forum.

The Powers that Be at PT explain their position on this in at least one previous thread (no, I'm not the "bee-in-bonnet girl") - most people want the anonymity to discuss their problems. Not everyone is comfortable asking for help with constipation, for example, or offering up their personal experiences with something and having their name attached to it. Bear in mind that this site invites groups of friends and co-workers to join.

I agree with the OP that it's a valid question. I also agree with the person that said bear in mind, people invite friends and co-workers to join. I for one am glad that I can ask things here. Even though my username can't identify me, I still don't even want them to know that I'm asking questions about personal s**t.

i've been on PeerTrainer for a year now and this question comes up every few months and has been debated quite a bit. The point is that our struggles with weight are very personal and many people wouldn't be able to post honestly if they thought their identity was linked with the post. there are plenty of opportunities to build relationships with people in groups and teams and if you really like what somebody is saying you can ask who they are and ask them to join your group or team. But the anonymity of posting in the Community page is well thought out and not likely to change anytime soon.

I think the first comment was a direct response to the tone of your original post. The tone of your post was rather rude, as well. Perhaps you didn't mean it to come across that way, but I was rather taken aback by your tone to start with.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
