    OK, I've only been on RJ for a short time, but I've noticed that a lot of threads have been started recently by members who have no pictures and often no profile info, or who are hidden/deleted.

    I've been trying to wrap my head around the significance/meaning of this. Are they merely trolls? People who fear to be identified with the implications raised by the questions that they are asking? Or is it something deeper than that?

    Anyone have any thoughts on this? Armchair analysis is welcome here. icon_biggrin.gif

    Hidden/Deleted are ex-members. Users who posted and deleted their profile.

    Most picture-less profiles are trolls/advertisers or just random people who find realjock through google and create a profile just to ask one question gay-related. There are though a few picture- less members that are just regular posters but most likely closeted gay-bi guys who want to remain that way.

    Yes, to all of the above. Also, consider that when you take your profile offline, guys can't message you. So it's a common troll tactic to start an inflammatory thread, then go offline and watch all the hens bicker amongst themselves. And your inbox doesn't get flooded with hate mail. icon_lol.gif

    Another explanation is that some guys only come here for the chat/cam rooms and don't bother filling out their profile or uploading pics. So there are "legit" reasons for blank profiles.
