    Hey, guys. I was just wondering what this means, besides the obvious that the member no longer has a profile here, if it's deleted. But, why would a profile be hidden? What's the purpose of that? And, is it hidden to everyone?
    I did a site search on this but nothing came up.
    Thanks.

    Sometimes people will hide their profile to take a break from the site or to post in the forums without showing who they are.
