    I'm wondering why people blot out so many things in their ratio proof shots? It seems like they would be easy to steal from someone else, seeing that the username is blotted out in most screens. Wouldn't it make more sense to keep the username in there? What harm does it cause to leave it in? I think for me it lends more creedence to see a screen that matches a users FST screen name. And some even blot out the decimals in the amount downloaded and uploaded, wtf?

    Or maybe I'm just incredibly naive.

    Anyone want to school me?

    A safety issue for the users. A lot of trackers don't want their names shown anywhere, and if a person keep their account name in the screenshot, there's always a chance they could get banned.
    Sig goes here.

    It's really to conceal the identity of the people posting because usually they are traders, or are doing something against site policy.

    Stealing ratios can be done, but afaik isn't necessarily a problem. However, it could be done so I always tag mine with smileys, etc.

    Although, I don't do it because I break site rules - it's just that you can never be too safe about revealing your account name.

    The only proof for me is a profile link with certain comment.

    As everybody can sent link to other profiles you may ask them to comment a torrent, insert soemthing in the profile etc, to proof that the profile belongs to them. Of course you have to own an account in the pointed tracker which can result in a kind of inconvinience...
