    I'll stand by anything I post here, but as far as browsing my profile, I choose to limit that. Sure a real malcontent can simply create an account, but that's an extra step that the 'drive by's' are less likely to do.

    One reason is to keep people from just going to the site and scraping data from profiles. Even if it's non-specific, a good snoop can develop a fair profile of you.

    I'll bet it's your browser, not the site....
