I was totally shocked and amazed that in the public area MERB has chosen to post the birthdays of members - date and User Id.Merb has compromised members privacy by doing so - given the month and day of birth makes it significantly easier to identify a member.
When provided to MERB this information was never authorized for public
release and by doing so Merb has broken a fundemental level of trust that
must exist between MERB and the members.
This action by MERB also casts doubt on the willingness and ability of the MERB ownership and moderators to properly perform their respective responsibilities.
