Why is there a place for "books mailed" and "books received" on the profile page if it just has a dash on most of them?  I have only noticed about 2 or 3 that actually have a number in these spots? 

Not really a big deal, just curious?????

It's a setting you can set yourself. You can choice to have them shown or not. Why people choice not to - I guess they have their reasons.

Some people have gotten nasty PMS from people asking why they send out a lot more books than they receive or vice/versa so they block the info.  I've sent out a lot more than I've received and I've never had any one say anything to me though.  I think also some people don't even realize they can show that or not they just didn't notice it in the profile setup or didn't know what it was so they checked no.

When you sign up now the default is to not show those items on the profile, I think.  Most people either don't notice or don't bother to switch it to be viewed with their profile.
