Yeah, plus if you piss someone off online, you don't want them to know what car is yours. It's a privacy thing and a good idea.

And with my collection of cyber enemies, I need to erase my plates, lol.

Is true tho, you can get their location tag + interior mods + lic plate. With those info, you can plan out how to jack their car and what to take.

Masking your License Plate is important so as people won't be able to locate you, we always talk about what we have in the car the mods, audio and video system, where we keep money in the car (joking !!!!) etc ... And we don't know who might be accessing the forum so we better be careful

i used to do that too (whiting out the plate) but after a while i could care less, just said f-it. all the cops in my area know my car and a handful know me. so, basically your ass is grass if you steal mine (plus my dandy compustar 2-way alarm)...

Computers are everywhere, so are theives. Once you've had your Identity stolen, it becomes a serious matter, very hard to deal with. Clearing your name can take years. I have Experience in this matter. Those who are flippant, don't understand.
