When we see, at the bottom of the main page, "4 users online - 1 member, 1 hidden and 2 guests" - why/how are they hidden? Why would a member choose to be hidden or, how could a guest (not signed up obviously) choose to be hidden?
Just wondering, as I often see hidden persons here.

A member can select to be hidden upon login.

I realize that, but still wonder WHY a member would want to be hidden :?: Anyone that has used "stealth" mode want to comment?

Nope. Guests don't even see the Who is online, if memory serves.
At login a member can tick a box to be hidden this session.

Who is online

In total there are 12 users online :: 5 registered, 0 hidden and 7 guests (based on users active over the past 5 minutes)
Most users ever online was 29 on 21 Jan 2013, 18:17

Registered users: Baldeagle, edwardgoodwin, flookyk1100, Keith Legge, Paul Lingard

Pieter, the above is what I see if "logged on". When not logged on I see the same info, apart from my name being "logged on" obviously and I am then classed as a guest rather than "registered"

Keith, as a "normal" registered member I cannot see the "hidden" users.
