Do you anchor or do you not? That is the question

Just wanting to know how many people anchor/don't anchor their pinky when playing. Personally i don't think either is bad or restricting (at least for me it isn't) i play both ways but prefer to anchor cause i have quite a long pinky so it feels restricting tucking it or keeping it off the pickguard the whole time while playing.

What about you guys?

Edit: Anchoring includes resting your palm on the bridge
