Clicking a user on a site with Remarkbox installed shows all that user's Remarkbox comments everywhere

devilgate 1y, 145d ago [edited]

If I click on a user who has left a Remarkbox comment on my own site, I see all their comments from Remarkbox. That is, all the comments they have made using Remarkbox anywhere (I assume).

So if for example you go to my post here and click on Russell's username, you'll see all his comments on Remarkbox, but shown as if they belong on my site.

Seeing all the comments a user has made on my site would be reasonable, if probably not what people would expect. But the the current situation seems like a privacy problem, as well as potentially being very confusing.

Agreed. It could be a big problem when one site allows conversation that another one wouldn't. Imagine seeing comments from a porn site on a church's site, for example.

Hmmm. Good call out. We should address this.

Even worse, it displays comments that are waiting for approval!

Confirmed. We should address this too. I'll take a look at it shortly.

Update: this was fixed in production.
