Isn't that the same thing as asking or answering anonymously?

It's a good way to keep your general profile, as well as all of your questions and answers private from the public. I think it's kind of pointless, but whatever, some people like their privacy.0
no. it's not the same thing.2
to keep pervs and creepy people away.0
Well sometimes other users sort of "stalk" you when your profile is not private.0
Because it's not fair to have my profile public when some other individual has it private and is all over my profile being nosey.0
um no. it just means friends can see your profile, but everyone can see your questions and answers0

When you make your profile private, it also takes away people's ability to randomly IM you. After I became a moderator, I got lots of random messages from people I didn't know about site issues they should have taken up with administration. So I made my profile private.0
They're either afraid of people they know, trolls or perverts finding them.0
So some random person can't hit me up on chat that I don't know.0
