    This probably happens because the trolls really try to mess up some people's accounts. They target specific user names I believe so those people who are targeted lie low for a while so that their answers stay here.

    There is a Setting that you can set to make it Private on your Answers Profile

    Click on your Username on the Left side of the Page

    Go to Edit Preferences

    Find where it says Privacy

    Then you will see a Option that says

    Who can see my Questions and Answers

    Click on that Box and click Viewed only to me

    How, it's done by clicking on your username (upper left of your screen in desktop mode), clicking Edit Preferences beside your avatar then clicking Edit on the next page beside the thumbnail of your avatar. Scroll down and you'll see a section for "Privacy Settings" and you can select who sees your posts. Select 'visible only to me' so that anyone who clicks on your avatar/username can see your stats but not your posting activity.

    Report-happy stalkers are the reason why so many users keep their postings private. It's their false reporting that often results in unnecessary violations and account suspensions. Simple as that.

    A proliferation of stalker trolls drove them to it.
