  • Because when you reach higher level you would have more haters.If you don't make it private some stalkers might go to your profile and check all your recent activities,down vote every of your answers.Beside that it also due to privacy.Some users have few pictures inside.People tend to add you for your pictures sometimes.

  • To keep perverts from trying to chat with us when we are online. I know that's why I made mine private. I had guys asking me for sex chats all the time and it was very annoying. Now I know that the only people that can chat with me are my friends.

  • Because there are a number of users who enjoy going through my answers & questions and spamming them :)

    Making my profile private prevents them from doing so. For that reason I also choose to not allow anonymous answers anymore :)

    I mean, I already know who "stalks" me, but I won't block them, especially since they're bipolar

    For some girls, it's due to perverts

  • Haven't fully privatized mine yet, but just took down actual pictures of myself for the same reasons the rest of these ladies listed.

  • @update: A lot of guys dot it for the same reason as girls. The male xper users are not interested in cybering with unknown females. They are actually respectable guys who understand the purpose of the site.

    Mine is private because I have obsessive stalkers like this one: link

    That's nothing, I have a lot of GaG horror stories because people abuse the admins trust.

  • I have no idea. It never used to be this many people with private profiles. Not that it matters. Do what you want.

  • Good question, it wasn't that way before. Mostly women are doing this; maybe too many personal messages? Even I get a few of these come on 'let's get to know each other' messages so I can imagine the pretty women here must get dozens.

  • People get hassle. Making your profile private is a way of saying 'Don't give me no jive, man. Just pick up and blow on out of here.' I never got the temptation to it though, I like the idea of people looking through my photos and reading what I've written on the bio and all that, hahaha. Vanity at the price of violation, ey. THAT OLD CHESTNUT.

    • #1 reason I think and women no doubt get a lot more of this.

    • I'm sure for every 1 girl sent me an IM, a girl on GAG received 10 messages from horny int3rn3t n3rdz. I wouldn't mind if a girl who's 18+ (Maybe 17) call me "sexy black man", but a 15/16 year old girl makes me think something is not right up there.

    • I love your attitude bro :DXHRB0978575529B486ABCA7EB68E0E44469XHR

  • Because I'd have someone random go to my profile and want to chat. To end that, I just set it to private.

  • Girls usually to keep away perv's trying to cyber with them. And others cause there paranoid about giving out personal information. Even if its just something silly like there name.
