I saw an anoymous question asking for advice on changing brokerages. That made sense to me.

I have wondered that since coming here, and I will be honest I usually don't answer their questions.

Same for those without some kind of photo or logo.

Good Question!  Maybe they don't want do feel inferior by not knowing the answer, so they don't say who they are.

Once in a while, the q's may be a bit confidential.  Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl gave a good example.  But the majority I see really seem innocuous.

Like Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl stated, the one about changing brokerages is the one that made sense to me.  Other than that, I'd guess it came in from the website and the person isn't a registered user.

Captain, it would make sense if a person had a serious question and need answers but didn't want the issue to be traced back to them for a particular case or circumstance.
