Why Hide?

I'm just curious why many of the forum members hide when they are on here? Anyone like to share?

It seems odd to be a member and yet make yourself invisible and kinda lurk around.....why? I see so many pop in and out,and there is a tally showing the number......sometimes it is quite high.

Just curious.......

Julie,

Could it be the newer people who aren't quite sure yet whether they're ready for us?

I went into invisible mode when we were teasing everyone about that special christmas present, trying not to give away the answer. but wanted to read the responses.

Debbie I was just going to say sometimes people only hide when things are going on so they can read with out being bothered or give things away. But we do have a few people who are always in hide mode, I have wondered the same thing.

Hmmmm..... sneaky devils! lol

I've never even thought of hiding, but then maybe I should! lol Nah. I can't be bothered. When I'm here, I'm here! But I love Debbie's reason for hiding. Maybe I can actually have my own new "christmas present" thread!!

I don't know about anyone else, and I have never been on hidden mode on this board, but I am usually on hide mode when I'm on myspace for a couple of reasons:

1. Sometimes I just have the window open, but am not on and I get embarrassed thinking other people must think I don't have a life because I'm on so much! (I know, why should I care?)

2. Sometimes I just want to check mail when I'm in a hurry...I may have emails I want to answer later, but I don't want someone to see me on and think "why isn't she answering my email?"

My guess is it's just a privacy thing.

I've never gone anonymous. I can't think of a reason why I would, actually. I figure, like Marj, if I'm here, I'm here. In my case though, often when I'm here, I'm not actually here. I just forget to log off.
I'll sometimes browse topics without logging in but it seems that whenever I do that, someone posts a photo that I just HAVE to look at so I have to log in.
