If an applicant's name is written in black, it would mean that they made their profile private. Those written in blue are public and if you notice, you can click on the name and it takes you to their page.

OK, thanks, but I've noticed the black names are much more prevalent in low-paid jobs. Logic dictates that black names would be more noticeable in the well-paid jobs, since I'd assume that there'd be much more benefit to being private if you're successful. Can you explain to me why someone who'd apply for low-paid jobs (i.e. really needs the work) would make themselves private?

Yes, I can see why people who've built a strong reputation/clientele may not wish to be bothered by unsolicited communication, but what interests me is why black names become more prevalent in the 'bids of under $1' category as well.
