I understand your point about the stigma, aj. While the stigma is underserved, I think a lot of people who have herpes still have to cope with their own belief in it. With that fear inside, it doesn't surprise me that some would like to avoid being linked to herpes. And not everyone has the personality to brave the world's possible judgement.
The fact is many people want to maintain their anonymity. By letting them maintain anonymity while donating hopefully they will achieve some sort of sense of control over the virus.
