I usually ask questions related to my studies and I don't like people finding questions via my profile,I don't have a problem at all if they find it via tags.Is there a way I can hide my questions from my profile?

why has this question been downvoted? It wouldn't be useful for me but I think it's a valid request to be able to suppress any information you don't want others to see. –  RoboShop Apr 18 '11 at 3:50

No, this is currently not possible. However, you can always log out of your account and ask your question anonymously—registration is not required to ask questions.

I would go so far as to say that I would see this as a mis-feature. I use the ability to look up another users past posts in several ways

  • Some times a really "bad" post could arise from either a user who isn't strong in English or from simple laziness. The user's history can be very helpful in determining which is most likely, and I can pitch my response accordingly
  • If I have some desire to reward another user (for a very good comment, or because their answer to my questions was just so great that a vote and an acceptance weren't enough, or whatever) I go to their profile and search for some other worthy content of theirs.
  • Some users show a pattern of asking vague, ill-founded, and underspecified questions with no obvious purpose. I don't want to spend my time answer them, and looking in their profile is how I tell.
