Or they find the word brings with it a world of assumptions. Polyamory doesn't suit everyones poly experiences as it can be used in a very exclusionary manner. :)
Other reason, she would be harassed to be the poster child of a movement she may not want to invest in. In her need for privacy, announcing she is poly could destroy her privacy.
Very cool set of articles, thanks rp :)
