I remember when the armory was first introduced a lot of Hybrids were vocal on the forums opposing it because it would reveal their hybrid spec and prevent them from getting invited to groups, even if they were healing with good gear.
There are a lot of hybrid specs that are plenty good at healing, and I'd rather all the talents remain hidden.
Even if I am not playing a hybrid, if I think my dps spec is better than the class lead's it'd be great if he didn't check me on armory and tell me to respec before the raid. He'll just have to wonder what happened when I out dps him.
If you feel you have to resort to hiding your spec from the general public, on account that you will not get invited to groups if your spec was easily available, then there's probably a problem with your spec.
Alternatively, if your hybrid spec does
have merit, then any competent raid leader/group organiser will know this--and therefore invite you. And if they don't invite you, then they weren't competent in the first place, and you would not want to be a part of that group anyway!
