Within the relative anonymity of GaG, why have a private profile?
You can go on/off anon as you please, and your profile pic can be a dinosaur if you choose.
So, why make your profile private?

Some people do it to cut down on the amount of pervy messages or because they've had problems with harassment and trolls do it to be inconvenient.

The only reason I had a private profile for a little while was because my sister made a GAG account and she knew who I am. I didn't like having a private profile, so I decided to just block her, so my profile shows as private only for her.
That was my reason. But I believe many people make their profile private so creeps can't send them messages, and so they can control who's following them.
I guess bc some people don't want other strange users messaging them all willy-nilly.
I don't really want people who I block to be able to see my account. That's just me
It's simple - creep message reduction
Stalkers or whatever reasons
Restricts who can message you. Especially if you use your picture, you can get a lot of creeps...

OBVIOUSLY they don't wanna receive any nasty messages from creeps ;)
even if u have a dino as yer profile pic, as long as u've got a female username there r creeps who would send u their shit
A lot of people don't want someone to use their pic to cat fish or they just don't wanna get perverted messages.
My profile is private to ward off unwanted attention.
