Wow! You know how to do a forum search. Brilliant!! Now what? I bet you are going to tell me I have a silver car right? Enough sarcasm here. You didn't get that from my license plate. My point is the "license plate blocking", to me, is no big deal but to each his/her own.

True and False!! I was "pushed out" of the Marriott by one of the event planners (politics) but stayed at the Hampton Inn.

I am really not sure. I am a Marriott Rewards member and apparently that didn't matter. The hotel manager told me that without being too specific.
The good news was I made reservations at the Fairfield Inn, Marriott, La Quinta, and Hampton Inn so if something goofy happened (like it did) at one hotel I still had a room.
Once I found out where I was staying was okay, I cancelled the other reservations promptly. BTW, me and the wife had a great time at the Hampton Inn.

My thread was close and directed here to this thread!
That thread was not intended for the discussion on "Blacking Out License Plates" like this one is!
It was about a discussion on why this one particular members here is constantly bitching for years about others blacking out the license plates when posting pictures...
That person in question happens to be an ex-Law Enforcement Office.
So I was trying to scope out if this always freaking out grumpy ex-officer had any means of investigating and getting info from our license plate numbers..

PS - Please don't close my Celebrity Contest thread!

It doesn't really bother me that much when I see people black out their licence plate, if they want to waste their time, that's their business. What does bother me is when I see people to lazy to use a image editing software to do it. Instead they hold their crusty looking finger up in the picture to obscure the plate. I only ever see it on craigslist and to me that means if you insist on blocking the plate and weren't smart enough to cover it with a rag or edit it out on the computer, you were defiantly to stupid to maintain a car properly and guarantee's me being not interested in purchasing.

You be the masterdebater alright.

Of all the topics that I'd never have thought warranted a thread, this would have been right up there. Do it, don't do it, but why talk about it?

I don't know why any individual does it but I can give you a pretty good reason why some may want to block it...

OPSEC

Let's just say I'm not friendly with the US and I've scoped someone out who I may want to turn and try to get information from that may compromise national security. Now, depending on how saavy the mark is, it may not be the simplest thing to get leverage on them.

Now I'm won't get their license plate from an online forum...hell, I already have that from when I "casually" bumped into them at lunch, struck up a conversation, and saw what car they got into. Nice little sports car they have there. Wonder if they're online.

With that information I can search Facebook and online forums like this for pictures of their car...verified easily if they have a picture of their plate showing...and figure out more about their online persona. Maybe they posted something somewhere that I can use as leverage that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

Obviously there is other information out there that could possibly identify them but having that license plate may just make the job that much easier.

Sound paranoid? Yea, a little...but such is the world today. Of course, with DC falling for regular old spear phishing scams and turning over tens of thousands of files on background checks with every single detail of that person's life now in the hands of who knows who a simple license plate picture seems pretty mundane.
