Reason(s) most Nairalanders don't display their real pictures on their profile by Jeboy(m): 5:36am On Mar 26
I noticed the trend of guys hiding their profile pics which was not so when we joined nairaland those days.

Is it because of the deceit, past experience, u just want to be anonymous, the vulnerability effect, intention to scam(some that use other genders pics).

Just drop a reason (s) why you chose to hide your true profile pics on nairaland.

It's because the forum is an anonymous forum.

Simple as ABC.

what is more fake than a husband snatcher?

If nairaland smells indeed, i think it's because of the 419 and husband snatchers.

Personal decision i guess... For me, the 1st write-off is not having a profile pix. Once you don't have a profile pix, i thread with caution.

If your NL account is less than a year or two, I thread with caution

If i check your past posts and comments and you seem unreasonable... I thread with caution

If you use a suspicious monicker... I interact with caution

If you are tribalistic... I deal with you with utmost caution

So many reasons I guess.
Anonymity for various reasons.
Lack of confidence
Evil intentions and so on.


It would be nice if most monikers had a profile pic though.

cheesy cheesy

You joined Nairaland at a time when I used to think it was a dull forum. Someone convinced me otherwise a couple of years later. The beauty of it all is the relative anonymity.

There are A-list celebs here. Up and coming comedians, frustrated wives, tired husbands, CEO’s of IT firms. Employees insult their employers here without knowing it. grin It’s a smokescreen until you reveal some personal information that is unique to you then someone would ferret out your details and your cover is blown.

Lol, because sometimes it can sort of come across like a personal ad & can attract unnecessary attention, especially from the males tongue

One thing I've noticed though, particularly with the NL females, when they've just put a new profile pic up, they tend to create unnecessary topics or stir up controversy, I suppose to capture enough attention & audience, to make people curious enough to click on their profile.

It's a faceless forum as they say but I still put up my profile picture because;
(1) I am not a fugitive.
(2) No bounty on my head and
(3)I am not scared of anybody

But I know the REAL NAMES and seen photos of a moderator, mannabbqgrills, cilicmarin (now deleted or has new moniker) and a whole lot of others. Mind you, their photos are not on their profiles.

Point is, this is a faceless forum that is why people make comments they cannot make in real life, so as not to by tagged "bad".
