actually, the list can be helpful to new people at curezone to get a good cross section of the most reliable posts. if others have found them helpful, then still others may as well. i think there are many messages out there that should have an R rating that dont.
as for privacy, well that is not possible within the parameters of the knicknames, etc. some have found it too revealing in the past and deleted their posts. the continuum force should be on the list, but alas, he removed himself from curezone for the most part. too bad. he was an interesting guy.
also, this is another way to highlight some of the great past posts buried 4, 5, or 6 or more years deep. so much said today is a repeat of those as well. there are simply worse environments and politics and some newer "discoveries", but some things never change.
