    Could someone explain me why most people hide so much info in their profile? I understand the username, passkey or IP. But whats the point of hiding the join date or half of the ratio like here
    Maybe its some security reason i am not aware of?

    Editted: Didnt read OP correctly...

    Answer: Exact numbers are easy to trace:

    1. How many members joined at exactly the same time and date as you? On the exact second? None?
    2. How many people have the exact same UL or DL amount? Not many.

    If you're not doing anything the tracker wouldn't approve of (trading, mainly) you don't have to worry about it ^_^

    It could be because that particular tracker prefers screenshots, no matter how small of their tracker to get out, thus if they find the account name of anyone who's showing these shots, they're gonna ban them. No one wants to be banned.
    In space no one can hear you scream.
    In cyber space no one can see your man-boobs.
