Default practicing poly but not ID'ing as poly?

So, in the thread on porn, three different people just mentioned that they don't self-identify as poly. This interests me, but I didn't want to derail the thread any more than we already had, so here's a new one.

This thread is not not NOT about telling anyone how they should self-identify! That's a complex personal decision. However, if you do practice polyamory (I'm not talking about the mono's who are in poly-mono relationships), that is to say you have more than one loving relationship or are open to it, but don't ID as poly, I'm curious to hear why.

Thanks much!
