Cause you can get all the info about a person from their plate. Protection from internet stalkers.

on a serious note many theives have friends that work at the dmv and will get your adress and yes the car or parts from it can get stolen this way, its just safer unless your vehicle isnt registered at your primary address

Yea but lets say some crazed internet stalker is looking for blood because he lost an e-fight. It would just be that much easier to track someone down.

and you guys know not everyone can look up the license plate information at the DMV correct? For our business we had to register with them and get a special PIN number.

Not bad, I would have taped off the reverse lights section, and left that as clear as possible.
