I just noticed that a lot of users have been hiding their age in their profile. Why is this so? Are you one of them? Just wondering ;D Have a nice day MyLotters!

Not at all I am not bothered how many people know how old I am. Other people knowing my age does not make me any younger!! Anyway perhaps it will make you young whippersnappers treay a poor old lady with some respect

Each has personal reason I have nothing to hide. It is fair to put age in profile. Age has nothing to with anything(eg policy or country where you are)

I think they considered a private information. Personally, I put my age in all my profiles.

Yes, I have noticed that. I used to come across a lot of mylot users who put 88 as their age. And obviously they weren't 88. I have no problem putting my age, but I guess some people just don't feel comfortable with it.

I keep my private because of security reasons. I know age is just how long you have lived on Earth, but I really don't care how old you are (unless you are under 18) as long as you are respectful to others, especially on here when you respond.

I don't mind the lack of age information as much as I do the lack of gender, sometimes it's hard to answer discussions if you don't know if you are speaking to a man or a woman.

I think some members just want to keep those kind of things private but not me. I displayed my age in my profile in almost all the sites that I'm registered to because I think there's no reason for me to hide it because it is just not that private for me. Happy mylotting =)

As for my case, I sometimes do that for security reasons... don't want to give all the exact data... not unless of course i am expecting some payouts. Otherwise, I guess, some hide their age because they feel that matters when they are into social networking. And maybe some are underaged! :)
