Considering westlo later said

If you're interested in a poster you click on their profile anyway....
I think he meant not having join date show under the avatar but still viewable in the user profile.

I find it understandable,you can choose to display age,location and you could choose to display your rep or not so why should join date be mandatory?
I honestly don't give a damn but if some users don't wish for their join date to be known I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to.

One can argue that Moderators are fine for this, but then Moderators already have a lot of work to do, and I think needlessly adding on to that work is generally negative.
You mean it's not already part of their work? I always assumed it was and when I first joined I always directed my questions towards them,this goes far any forums I've joined in my life.

Can you explain your Harushi example again?Because I don't see how anything other than the Harushi avatar could start off the VM conversation.
