Why are so many people hiding?

We belong to a site filled with mature gamers. A site for like minded folk to play games together. Yet, I can't help but notice how many of us hide from each other by signing in "Offline" when we turn on our xbox. Why hide from mature gamers? They should be able to understand your reason for not joining your gaming session. I mean if you are hiding from someone because they are annoying then why are they on your friends list? If your hiding cause you want to play single player games that session then there is no reason to hide, just say so when the invites come in. A mature gamer will understand. WHATEVER the circumstance there is NO reason to hide from friends .
I think its time all of us go through our friends lists and ask ourselves if these people truly belong on it. If they are hiding from non GG member then I am not sure I want the hassle of experiencing that persons friend in one of my games. I think these problems are better policed with the "invite only" option on a party. You are not hiding just filtering who gets into the game. I have 2 non GG members on my friends list and they know to message me before trying to enter a game. You will never be able to play with 100 friends on a regular basis so why are they there. If you can manage to play with all 100 you either have no life or are in the gaming business.
I may be missing something here so your comments are welcome. I am curious as to why someone would would hide from folks they feel are friends by having them on your xbox friends list.
Thanks for your time
