On there is a setting with which geocachers can prohibit third-party applications from accessing their information. This makes all API-using partner apps useless for that cacher and also prohibits other cacher from looking at their information via such apps. This means that Project-GC can't access their information, so they appear as "Anonymous Geocacher" (since we can still see that someone awarded an FP).
