Why do people fudge their numbers here and on LSN? Or decline to reveal EC's in hopes of "not being found?" Who are they trying to hide from? Most say they'll reveal after the cycle is over, so I assume it's only while applying (thus the reason this is in the LS Applications forum.) Should I be more discrete?

Most of the political bloggers I know (myself included) felt that dropping our anonymity was part of gaining credibility. It's really hard for a mainstream media source to cite "the blogger known as Fred Hacker," even if that blogger originally broke the story. And serious programming geeks - my spouse, and earlier developer of teh internetz, has over a million Google hit attributable to his name.But here, at LSD and other BBs, it probably is safer to remain anonymous if you can, particularly if you're apt to say stupid things .
