Do you have a private profile?
What made you decide to set your profile as private? Do you allow messages from people you don't follow? Would you set your profile to private? Why or why not?

My profile is private because there are too many creeps. I don't allow messages from people I dont follow.

No. There's no reason for me to go private. If I get one person messaging me shit constantly, I'll just block him. I don't know why people go private.
No, I allow everyone to message me as well. If I think someone is going beyong the limits I just block the person. No need to make my profile private.
Narh, public, and I don't really have a reason to make it private but I know girls get harrassed a lot on here so I can understand why most of them would have a private profile. Fair assumption that that's the reason?
my profile is completely open to anyone. I don't really see the benefit in hiding behind a private profile when one can easily block people who send you private messages. Thing is though, i almost never get messages from anyone... both friends, and enemies... not unless i messaged them first and they feel obligated to respond, haha.
I used to have a private profile but I took it off private so I could chat and meet new people on the site
Mine isn't private because I don't mind getting messages whether they're good or bad.
Even when I get into full fledged arguments on here, I still don't block. I've blocked one person though.
only a private bread... my profile's public :D
Yours is private. Just wondering, why did you make yours private?
I keep it public. I keep it open if anyone has anything they want to talk about privately or just to say hi.
I don't think any real girl here in GAG would send me inappropriate messages.
It was in the beginning, but no one could email me, so it's not private anymore.
Nah I don't. If you get too many creepy messages. Its easy to ignore and hit the block button
Saw no reason to make it private...
If I don't want something to be know, then I will set my profile to private. I don't set my profile to be private, otherwise I just leave it blank if I can.
Nah. I prefer it being open because I like visitors.
I don't have anything private.
.. But does it matter!
Usually guys dont have private profiles

I was thinking about making it private but I changed my mind since I post anonymously quite often anyway...
so that I can choose who can follow me and so that no idiotic guys would send me inappropriate messages
No, I don't see the point in it. It's quite easy to ignore and block people I don't want to talk to who message me.
Yes I have a private profile so I don't receive any creepy messages
Private profile so people don't know when I am online. I can just post anon without being hassled by people who want to speak to me.
I don't have a totally private profile but only people I follow can message me.
Yes because y wouldn't want people to know u or your business
I set it on private mode and messaging not allowed from outsiders.
I keep it private as there's too many creeps, but I do allow messages from people I don't follow. Unless they get off limit and begin to harass me, then I'll just block them.
I think private makes it less fun
Nope. I have nothing to hide so act make my account private
Nope, it's mine is wide open.
