Bits column in Memberlist

Why is there a column if you can't see the other persons bits?

Because we made it so Bits were a 'bit' more private and forgot to remove it from the member list because admins and mods can see the Bits in the list.

I guess we should remove that column OR make all the Bits public again.

Maybe we should take a vote?

Wow, eight votes and still a 50/50 split. Will this finally be the war that tears this community apart? Smilie

OK, based on the poll, I errored on the site of privacy and removed the Bits column from the Member List.
