I recently got confused over private messaging and that "activity" feature of this forum. What I thought was a private message ended up plastered into a public "activity" area.
Turns out I am not alone in this confusion. Many other people have made the same mistake.
Looking at my activity area now I see many messages that were obviously intended to be private. How do I know that, they say so like this:
"I don't think it would be in the best interest of Parallax for me to ask this question publicly, so I'm asking it privately."
There are messages there between forum members discussing me. Obviously those messages were not intended for my eyes.
This is a grave privacy concern. The "activity" areas is not just brain dead. It's dangerous.
Please remove it as soon as possible.
