    I know it's small and petty of me, but I don't send welcomes to those who are listed "in hiding."

    It's probably that many people are hesitant to disclose too much about themselves when they first join, until they get to know the site is really safe, the community of members is solid, and they feel comfortable.

    I have seen this question before and one reason that was given was some are secret pals and don't want the person they send things to , to know who it is.

    it took me a while to discover the "profile" area on the QB. I like to see where people are from, esp.when they are discussing the weather!!

    It was explained to me once, that some might be "in hiding" if they have a secret pal swap going on and don't want to spoil their surprise in advance.

    Maybe they just didn't fill out the rest of the info when signing up.

    Even in hiding we can tell by time of day, weather, climate, snow, skiing, beach, etc. Fun to think about it too. And not just "in HIding", some never put a thing about themselves, nothing, nada. And with Cyber theft and such on here and the possibilites of things that could happen, guess its understandable. Me??? life is what is it, what will be will be, I'm not living in fear.
    And I have had members have me send things to secret pals so the post mark is different and throws their secrets off. It is so fun. We are like big kids playing in a large sandbox of life. All is good. Being mysterious is a fun thing too. And then there are those who post all about everything, everywhere on the board. Ahem...me? ♥♥
