Have to agree,I thought it was already being addressed,but maybe not..not a big deal,but the list of threads is now so short,that quickly you find yourself in the messages..and it is kind of like a car accident,you know you shouldn't look,but still,you take a gander..I am able to look away and find something else quite quickly,only reading like the top one or two,which usually is our dear Spideyman to Ms Mod,and I must say a day reading anything Maryann writes cheers up your day..but still I think this feature should be fixed if they can.. :)

I think the issue now , is the it is too accessible. In the past you actually had to go to a members profile page to see the messages. And there was a feature that members could limit those who had access to their profile page.

I am finding myself "editing" what I say in profiles messages now.
Then quit talking smack about me!!! :p

I'm not a fan of the new way of displaying the messages either but unless Jordan is able to find a work-around, we may be stuck with it. As was pointed out, the profile pages have always been available for anyone to read if they were not limited in each individual's settings. The words of caution would be that if you don't want someone else reading something on your profile page, either set it to be private or take those discussions to a private conversation.

I am very uncomfortable that I can now see what members are posting on other members/mods profiles.
I know it's not a PM, but seems like it should not be out there for all to see.

Just me?

No, I noticed it, too. It was a little jarring. Even though members could visit other members' profiles before, it now seems exposed.
