Just curious as to why so many people block out their faces in their pics. I don't have any kind of problem with it, I just don't really understand why. If this was a child porn site or something like that I could understand it, but this is just dudes posting pics of their progress in weightlifting/bodybuilding.

Ive wondered the same thing... why be anon about it? Are we a site filled full of paranoid people or what? I dont give a damn who sees my pics, hell- Ive told people to come check em out.
So whats the issue? Everyone Ive seen on here has reason to be proud of their bodies and their progress they have made.

Because "they" are watching.

Honestly, my guess would be because some folks on this site partake in pharmaceutical endeavors, and don't want to deal with potential legal issues? Also, because once your face is on the internet, it is on here F O R E V E R .

Astronaut summed it up... you never know who is looking at these sites... :hide:

Besides, I don't see any of your guys' pics up. :p

Some people just feel more comfortable posting pics of themselves when they do so. Just sort of a comfort thing. Others do it just because they make just some stupid faces when they pose.

I put my mug on the 'net, and look what happened.


and yeah, if you're into illegal stuff then I can understand why you'd want some privacy.

Isn't everyone here annonymous though?

Isn't it pretty time consuming & costly to go through the process of tracking one's ISP address?I mean I've seen numerous pics of juicers on other forums that don't hide their faces.For instance I know what you look like Patrick,but I wouldn't go through all the hassle to track your ISP just to bust you for posession of anabolics
*I know you don't use,I'm just using you as an example since I've seen your face

Hell,I know I wouldn't hide my face,even if I was on steroids.No one knows my name,the country I live in or my address.But then again,I'm an upfront honest person.I only hide out of shame:)

I either chalk it up to

1)Personal preference_some people just don't like their face shown on the 'net
or
2)IMHO Paranoia_AAS users(for example)are worried that the law will track their ISP to arrest them.From what I gather that's a pretty costly endevor to do that.

Many reasons. This is the internet being the most obvious. Parading your pic around the net is not a smart decision.

I did however recently show my pic on this website for a few days, b/c i have been here a long time and some people would like to know. It is down now.

If you know someone's IP address, there are actually several online websites that can pin-point ISP you are using and from there its typically pretty easy for people to gather where you live. Its cheap (free really) and can be done within a matter of minutes.

Hey EdgarMex, thanks for the helpful link, Butthole.

Especially for the feds.

You're right. The war on drugs is pretty costly, it's your tax dollars at work.

there are the gay porn people out there who take BB pics and alter them a little.

i think its happend to a few people off sites like this. If your face is not on it. less likely to be done.

BTW - who has seen the lee preist pic in black and white with the really big peni*? i wonder if he has ever seen it.

Because someone from work can find wannabebig, see a pictures of my in my Calvin Klein’s and start telling everyone one at work. All of the sudden, some people will like the pics and others will look at them negatively. Next thing you know the only thing holding you back is the fact you posted some "risqué" pictures on the net.

I'm not anonymous...
My real name is Geoff Garcia and I use it all over the web.
I have nothing to hide from anyone, but on my flexing pics I dont include my face (although it is in my profile here) just because I figure I look a little goofy when I'm flexing...

I think hiding behind a sobriquet is a little childish :indian:

Yeah, so what? That was a legitimate question and it has nothing to do with whether I have a picture up here or not, it was just a question asked out of curiousity. But since you obviously have to turn it into "UGH...Well, where's YOUR picture..(like wtf?? that's idiotic!), If you really must know I don't have any pictures posted up here because I DONT HAVE ANY TO POST. And If one day I feel like getting some and posting them then i will, and I'll even show my face!! Is that ok with you? Since you seem to want to see a pic of me so bad, I'll even send you some priority, ok? I'm getting tired of your nit-picking at me every time I post something, you remind me of my grandma. You make it out to be that because I don't have any pics posted I don't have the right to ask people why they hide their faces in their pics, when I clearly stated in my post that it was a question asked out of simple curiousity. As you would say, "I am just curious", when you were younger did you always get beat up by the school headbangers that listened to Ozzy Osbourne or something? Just curious. I can change my name if it's bringing back bad memories for you.

Man, someone here really has attitude problems... *cough* deca *cough* Anyways, Who really cares if someone hides there face? Not everyone likes seeing their own pictures.

And by the way... The school 'headbangers' that always thought that they were tough always got pushed around by the jocks in our school. They could never back up their 'talk'.
