  • I'm wondering if I should make someone my enemy just to see what the face looks like... :-)

      I did! And oddly enough, I picked darobin! :-)
      • Somebody clear this up for me. Is the ability to tell who named you "friend" or not a change, or has it always been that way. Because I thought the message used to say, "Who you pick as a friend is private; it cannot be used against you," but it says just the opposite. Did it change, or am I blind?

        Actually, if you saw how thick my glasses are, you'd say I'm blind. But seriously.

        • No, it said just the opposite. It's always said it is NOT private, that it CAN be used against you. I remember because when we designed the feature, I insisted on making sure that disclaimer was there for the time when we might decide to make the information available. :-)
          • Somehow I misread it the first time through. No harm done, though. (So far I've marked only two people as friends. Not that I don't like anyone else, just not making full use of the feature yet.) I always presume anything I do here can be visible to the full Perl community, because you run the site, and everybody knows you. :) (And I don't see that as a problem.)
