We are anonymous, but the forums are open, and googling can show people conversations on here, Cid24.
Also, some threads are put onto Facebook and Twitter.

Welcome Cid24

Only your user name appears on the site - although as MissAdventure has said sometimes threads do appear on Facebook and even newspapers, so be careful not to post anything which could identify you.

No, totally anonymous. Of course, there is the private message facility which only seen by yourself and whoever you send a PM to.
I've gained two pen pals by using PM 😁

No you’re fine I ve been on here 5 years and as far as I know no ones ever ‘found me out’ a couple of members I ve made friends with have my email address by my choice but no it’s never seen you’re safe
If you want to ask for help with a problem just change some of the details and never post real names etc
