    • I know, right?

    • #preach !

      I come across people bitching about anonymous activity, quite regularly on here.

    • Well yeah, indeed SOMETIME people use their anon option to disrupt other people's experiences in this site.
      But I think we can all agree that "Private Profiles" (here or on facebook) are not related to that problem.

  • Not really, I'm a guy and even I see how annoying guys can get, the rise of mean comments from both sex, and dudes on here only looking for 1 thing. It gets to the point where you got to let them know you're not available to stupidity.

  • A lot of people (including me) feel like we can be more honest with a private profile. People can't just look and see me give one kind of opinion for one person, then a different kind for another person. Before I made mine private I had 2 people 'call me out' for giving them a different opinion then I did before and I got tired trying to explain that every person and couple is completely different.

  • This post is such bullshit. I've heard so many damn users complaining about anonymous activity lately.

    I have no idea why anonymous questions / answers irritate people so much. Doesn't hurt to be extra safe on the internet if someone is really paranoid or had a bad internet experience in the past.

    • That's how I feel too. Some butthurt little boy blasted me on another thread for having a private profile with messaging disabled.

  • Some people don't want perverted messages and unwanted followers who simply follow just about everyone they think is good looking

    • Why's that?

    • Showing a picture of yourself has by far the biggest impact on privacy, and the privacy settings don't affect who sees it.

    • My picture isn't me.

  • No, that's stupid. I've always kept my profile private becaue I don't like to share too much of my information to random strangers on the internet.

  • It doesn't offend me, but it makes me a bit sad when I read someone's profile, liked it a lot, want to send them a message, and realize they have messaging disabled.

    • I presume these were female users ' profiles? Damn uncontrollable horny fucks ruining the community!

    • If everyone here were as disrespectful as you, then there wouldn't be a community. The private messages I wanted to send weren't sexual at all.

    • No wonder you come from the MK "community", by the way. Nobody there knows how to behave in society.

  • Not at all. People have a right to privacy.

  • Not really, though I prefer users allow messaging. Generally, if you'd like to be in touch with someone and send a message from time to time, you can ask (in any post) if they'll follow you back. Than it works :D

  • No. Why would I? Even I have kept my profile as private. Simply cause I don't want to receive any inappropriate msgs or any inappropriate pictures.
    I was tired of it... I use to block jerks. But there were some guys who use to make multiple accounts and message me over and over again.

    Oh and also, there was a guy who always commented on almost all my opinions. He wasn't even my friend. It use to annoy the hell out of me.

    • Oh wow. Someone enjoying the brilliance of your words was "annoying you"? That's not very nice!

    • @Prof_Don Lol. No no. He use to post either sexual comments on all my comments... Or sometimes he use to post really rude comments if I ignored him

  • I don't see how it could be offensive. Sometimes it's annoying if I want to message them to compliment them on a post or something, but I'm unable to but I just think they're missing out and carry on.

  • No, I'm not. I have a private profile because I get a lot of creepy messages, and for the fact that I don't like to draw attention to myself. Making my profile private averts the creeps away from my profile... :p But, if anyone follows me, 99.9% of the time I will approve your follow request, and will follow you back. We have a right to our privacy, I'm just an introverted person, that's all.

  • It doesn't offend me, because mine's private too. But it's a little irritating when you can't pm them to ask them something without giving those opposing his opinion a point to dwell on.
