sorry mahouni, in http://www.bewelcome.org/forums/s1984-hidden_feature__last_comments some people (incl. me, hehe) actually say that they like this feature and even want to extend it, see #1589

also, it helped me more than once to quickly identify and ban a spammer.

either way, no consensus on this exists, so we can't just remove it.

closing this one.

  • Milestone changed from 1.1 to unassigned

just so it doesn't pollute the changelog

Sorry to disagree here, planetcruiser. But again, if that feature should be extended, please do it correctly with an opt out as default. At the moment this is a hidden feature only for insiders. The authors of the comments are unaware of that feature. The intended destinations of references are other members profiles, nowhere else. So this feature is revealing content that was not written for the purpose to be on that "community" stream.

If it should be necessary for spam monitoring, then rather change the access to that page as soon as possible to admins or volunteers only. A patch for it would be ready.
