HA I didn't know they were public either

Hand stays down.Hands up those who knew prior to this discussion that rep comments were visible to all. I didn't for one and I believe that Claw is another who thought comments were only viewable to the giver and receiver - "off the record" in journo-lingo.
I would say that there would be a few comments passed that were made in the belief that it was privileged information. (now there will be a mad scramble to see just what people don't want made public)
My impression of people digging around to read comments is akin to sifting through people's garbage bins or placing "bugs" in someone's house to overhear conversations. An invasion of people's privacy!
If they're not private then it can't be an invasion of privacy can it? A simple impossibility I would have thought.Your reply was rather dismissive.
I was surprised that a person of your profession would be unconcerned about privacy.
He loved his rep that boy and.......Where the hell is atJason30 ??? Have the tiges broken his spirit ? Did he get sacked for too much Y&B on work hours ? Did someone upset him ? Did his missus ask him to choose between Y&B or her ??II recall making reference to one of [MENTION=5891]Jase30[/MENTION] 's rep comments in one of my posts, something about "kick it long FFS!"
Your take on the privacy thing would be correct if everyone knew that the comments were not private.If they're not private then it can't be an invasion of privacy can it? A simple impossibility I would have thought.
. . . I didn't see it as an invasion of privacy, because it's not private. Now that you know it isn't, you can proceed accordingly.
Well done! :applause:Ooh I'm an 'immortal' now!
Finally have internet access after the move (thanks, Optus - you're as bad as bloody Telstra! :banghead & I see it is too late for me to vote.I voted No as I believe it is like a PM. Sometimes it is because you agreed with the post at others it is to give the poster a gee up when they may think all is against them. Yes you could do a PM but for a single sentiment unseen rep is much easier.
