Hi there hiteshrup! The picture I am using right now is my real photo. There was a time when I used a picture of a bottle. However, since I started here at myLot, all the pictures, except the picture of a bottle is my picture. I personally believe that the reason why there are people here who do not use their real picture is because they want to remain anonymous. Sometimes, it's easier to express how you feel and your ideas on certain issues when you are not known to others. Or, they just do not feel comfortable using their real pictures as avatars.

I had my real photo here for a long time. And I'm not afraid to show my real face. I just wanted to change something so I decided to change my avatar. I like this anime picture so I chose it.

Hi there Hiteshrup! I have my real photos here in Mylot. I guess that there can be a lot of possible reasons why some people don't use their real photo. Some may be not too confident about how they look in pictures, some would like to maintain their privacy, some may be too lazy to upload their own photos, and some may truly admire the celebrity whose photo is what they use as their avatar here.

[emObviously my avatar is not my real picture but I have real pictures on my profile page. I have noticed that many people use pictures other than their own. Don't we all want to look like movie stars? No, I think that some people do this for the sake of anonimity. It feels safer, I guess, to post a picture other than one of yourself. Honestly, I do have blue eyes.

all mine are real and it drives me crazy when other people dont.. i guess maybe they dont think highly of themselves or are protecting their identity or something.. seems silly to me though
