    People are hiding their screenies because they do not wish to be located, with tracker staff usually at mind. Their reasons for wanting to hide might be related to one or more of the following:

    1) They're violating tracker rules, e.g. trading forbidden invites/accounts etc.
    2) They do not trust tracker staff. Some sites (x264 comes to mind) disapprove of their members being members on FST to the point that they'll actually disable your account for that reason alone.
    3) Scammers are known to use other people's screenshots to lure other into trading with them.
    4) Security considerations.

    If none of these reasons concerns you then there's no need to hide your information.

    well as he said, an unedited screen shot can lead to an admin/mod of a tracker knowing exactly who you are there, and that could be bad
    The other bad thing is people will know your username. depending on the tracker, some people out there may try to crack your account.

    Pics need to be edited especially for higher trackers as you have a higher chance of losing them.

    Post all your screens now. Don't edit anything out. You will be fine. These fellaz are just paranoid from too many drugs.
