Personal choice I suppose. I know I wouldn't want to be seen lurking.

There are a number of reasons. So that people don't know what forum they are in (maybe people ttc and don't want everyone to know they are lurking in there!!!). So that if someone they work with logs in they don't see that they are also logged in (if people know your username of course). And maybe just because it's nobody elses business whether you are logged in or not :o0
