Here I've been wondering about our team's/my final stats and I
never even knew that the data had been available! That's what
I get for not checking the stats regularly.

Are we going to get any more final DES2 stats?

As far as bile goes, the concealment of email addresses
was taken to be expected given that passwords were required
to access them. Decide to be consistent with your own stated
goals and/or principles and you'll get less bile.

Either discard the 'feature' of address concealment or
maintain it.

Lastly, don't whine to us about our complaints when you
don't do what you said you'd do. Just be glad that 'only
tens' out of 20K complained. That's a rather small set of
dissatisfied folks. How many more are dissatisfied now that
they know that the supposedly confidential(at least hard to
reach) data was exposed?

It's your own fault.
