My point was that the public display of stats should be an opt-in choice…not an opt-out choice.

Assuming that everyone wants their stats publicly available is presumptuous on the part of Groundspeak and could be easily seen as another privacy issue. I don’t care too much for the statistics of the game myself, so why would I want others to be able to analyse my stats.

The behavior has always been the same since release, but it wasn’t clear that you only saw the waypoint ID for those stats if you were viewing your own. That is now clear. :)
